The small British Columbia town of Lytton now has the dubious distinction of posting Canada’s hottest daytime high since records have been kept.

And it may not even last long.

Lytton, near Kamloops in the interior of the province, posted a 46.1 degree Celsius high on Sunday with many forecasters saying temperatures in the province could go even higher this week as the province bakes under a so-called “heat dome.”

Records across the province fell Sunday and B.C. wasn’t immune to the heat–the Pacific coast is feeling it.

Seattle came close to a one-day record and Portland did break a record.

It’s a worrying trend with July not even officially started, wildfire season still not at its peak and a continuing drought in much of California.
