In Canada, people are troubled by the heat of the sun. Canada's Meteorological Department said that on Tuesday, the highest temperature ever recorded here. An all-time high temperature of 49.5 °C (121 °F) has been recorded in Canada.



Let us tell you that the condition of people in British Columbia is bad due to the heat these days. Schools and colleges remained closed on Monday due to the scorching heat here. Record temperatures were recorded over the weekend in the western Canadian province known for brutal winters and snowfall. The temperature here also crossed 100 degrees Fahrenheit.


Lytton, a city in British Columbia about 200 kilometers (124 miles) north of Vancouver, recorded temperatures above 46 degrees Celsius (115.88F) on Sunday. According to Environment and Climate Change Canada, the highest temperature ever recorded was 45 °C in Saskatchewan in 1937. This summer's heat has also broken many local records in western Canada, given that it was feared that Tuesday's day was going to be even hotter.

High sustained heat is unusual for the Pacific Northwest, said Greg Flatow, a senior research scientist at Victoria-based Environment and Climate Change Canada. There is more rain here than the sun rises, which is due to a high-pressure system that is currently not moving. "Nowadays the temperature here gets very hot during the day and the nights are not too cold," Flato said.
