Langley broke a temperature record on Sunday, July 7, according to Environment Canada's monitoring stations.

The thermometer hit 33.3 degrees Celsius, breaking the previous record for July 7 of 32.6, set in 2010.

With a heat wave covering much of B.C., Langley was just one of 22 communities across B.C. setting high temperature records.

The hottest of those was Lytton, which registered a temperature of 39.9 and broke a record going back to 1953.
