Is there something wrong with our climate? While a Heat Wave scorches U.S. Midwest and East, Snow falls in British Colombia and a Russian arctic port needs icebreakers in July. Yes that is just very weird!
A blistering heat wave will sweep the U.S. Midwest and East on Saturday and Sunday, when temperatures and humidity levels are expected to reach well above normal.
Tens of millions of Americans will be under heat warnings, watches and advisories as temperatures reach above 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37 Celsius) in major cities such as Chicago, New York and Philadelphia. Cities across the region, from the Mississippi River to the East Coast, have set up cooling centers to keep people out of the dangerous heat. The hot weather is especially dangerous for young children, elderly people and people with health problems, it said.
Meanwhile in British Colombia, Canada, no matter where you go in the province today, you won’t escape the cold. Rain showers are expected to periodically hit several regions of B.C. until Wednesday and if you’re up in the mountains there’s snow. It already fell on Big White in the Okangan and some mountain passes Monday morning, closing biking trails and putting motorists on high alert. Whistler Blackcomb also got hit with the white stuff, delying the opening of their summer season Peak Chair opening.
