It was a hot one – at least, for the fall – across much of B.C. last Sunday, as 10 spots around the province reached record highs.
According to Environment Canada, Campbell River hit 20.5 degrees Celsius, Esquimalt hit 18.8 degrees, Malahat hit 17 degrees, Pemberton hit 17.5 degrees, Pitt Meadows hit 21.5 degrees and the Victoria area hit an average of 18.7 degrees, beating temperature records everywhere they were measured.
The oldest record was beaten in White Rock, where Sunday’s temperature of 22 degrees beat an 86-year-old record of 18.9.
While the Comox Valley did not break any records, we still enjoyed a gorgeous autumn day, with the mercury rising to 15.4 C. The record temperature for Oct. 29 was in 1966, when it hit 18.3 C.
