BRITISH Columbia residents will be trading their rain gear for swimwear this long weekend as temperature records as high as 44.4 Celsius could tumble.

A special weather statement issued by Environment Canada has warned residents from Prince George, in central B.C., right down to the Canada-U.S. border the heat is about to be turned up.

"A massive ridge of high pressure will develop on the Canada Day weekend. The ridge will bring hot air from the desert southwest of the U.S. to the B.C. Interior," the alert said.
