We may find ourselves in the 30 degree range for parts of the Fraser Valley on Friday.
Saturday the forecast calls for highs of 27 near the beach to 33 inland.
Sunday we could see a high of 28 near the water to 34 inland.
This comes at a time when much of the province is bone-dry, and various municipalities are bringing in water usage restrictions.
And much of the money set aside to fight forest fires around BC has already been spent.
