B.C. Wildfires on the Rise
Almost 12 wildfires in the blink of an eye (Over the weekend)
It is not all sun and cheers in BC. The lack of rain has proven to bring the worst conditions to BC with wildfires rising by the minute. It took a while for BC to feel the full effects of the season but with temperatures rising, heat has finally flooded the province. Forecast don’t show signs of cooling down and precipitation is much needed in places where temperatures will reach up to 35 Celsius.
With that said, wildfire season is here whether we like it or not. Heat warnings were issued on Monday with highs reaching to 36 in parts of BC. These temperatures are typical for this time of the year. In fact, predictions were made from heat and fire patterns that hover over B.C. every summer. Trends show that we will be entering a hot and dry summer for the rest of July and most of August.
As heat waves invade most of British Columbia, fire activity is on the rise. One of the biggest wildfires that officials are dealing with is the 500-hectare East Shuswap Road wildfire in Kamloops. The heat and wind contribute to feed the smothering fires. The lack of rain in the forecast is concerning and frankly, discouraging as crews face the growing fires.
