The official philosophy is that the dead zone in BC is pulling down the cold air for us in the east. Thus, heat waves bring cold. The reality is that the weak Pacific plumes can't cross the mountains. BC has only two choices - rain or dead air. Stagnant air is always hot in summer.
So, we get colder.
