With the BC wildfire smoke clearing, we could be seeing some hot weather.
 
Generally the end of July welcomes some of the warmest temperatures of the year and experts are saying this year will be no different.
 
"We will see how things evolve, we only have a seven day forecast for now but through that next seven days it's generally temperatures well up in the twenties," said Environment Canada meteorologist Dan Kulak.
 
Wednesday and Thursday the Fort and area could see temperatures hitting the high 20s and even low 30s in some areas.
 
"We've had some years where the warmest temperatures of the entire season have been in August or even September," added Kulak.
 
As unpredictable as the weather is, it doesn't look like we should be seeing much smoke in the air for the near future.
