People living in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley will get some relief from the heat as temperatures are slightly dropping and a heat warning has been cancelled. 

Environment Canada ended the heat warning for those regions at 10:07 a.m. on July 10.

More than 40 heat warnings were issued on Sunday, July 7 for the province. Heat warnings and special weather statements for coastal areas of B.C. went into effect on July 5.

Temperatures will still be above seasonal averages this week and into the weekend. Environment Canada is calling for 24 C to 23 C until next Tuesday.

The forecast has sunshine all week long into Sunday. 

As previously reported by V.I.A., it was likely Environment Canada would lift the heat warning for Metro Vancouver if overnight lows dipped into the mid-teens overnight Tuesday.

The UV index in Metro Vancouver will be eight or higher on Wednesday and seven on Thursday.

Heat warnings continue to be in place more than 20 regions in B.C., including the Fraser Canyon, Okanagan, 100 Mile and Kootenays.

On July 9, nearly 40 B.C. communities set new record highs. Lytton reached 42.5 C beating the past the 1975 record of 40.6 C for July 9.

A special air quality remains in place for Metro Vancouver.

Elevated ground-level ozone (smog) is expected to last the next couple of days. The advisory will remain in effect until further notice.
