Since late June 2021, due to the strong blocking high over the west coast of North America, extreme high temperature has occurred in northwest USA and western Canada. The number of days with daily maximum temperature greater than 37 in western North America from June 21 to 29 is 2-4 days. On June 29, Lytton in Canada broke Canada’s temperature record with 49.6.

 Based on the GRAPES-GFS, it is estimated that a wide range of high temperatures will continue in western Canada in the next 24 hours. (Editor: Meng Qingtao, Zhao Wei, Wang Yi)
