In late June 2021, the Pacific Northwest experienced extraordinarily high temperatures. British Columbia alone recorded over 60 record high temperatures, with the town of Lytton setting an all-time high temperature in Canada for three consecutive days, peaking at 49.6 C (121.3 F). During this talk, we will explore the meteorological conditions that led to these extreme temperatures‚ÄĒanalyzing the upper air dynamics, mid-level thermal anomalies, and terrain effects during the event. We will also delve into the societal and environmental impacts regionally.


Christopher Rodell is a second-year Ph.D. student of Atmospheric Science at the University of British Columbia. His research interests range from coupled atmosphere-wildland fire behavior, fire weather and smoke forecasting, and field observations of controlled burns.
