B.C. Broke 39 Cold-Weather Records Last Wednesday, as an Arctic Blast Plunged into the Province

Matt MacDonald, a meteorologist with the National Weather Agency, said last Wednesday, Oct 3, saw 14 daytime records broken, 18 overnight lows smashed and seven new records for snowfall, including a whopping 28 cm in Sparwood.

MacDonald said the arctic front plunged down from the north and clashed with moisture from the Pacific Ocean.

The record-breaking cold temperature for B.C. last Wednesday was in Clinton, where -14.2C was recorded, tearing apart the old mark of -5C set in 2012.

In Prince George, the mercury dipped to a record -12.1C, breaking the old -9.4C mark set in 1950.

It was a teeth-chattering -11.6C in the Puntzi Mountain region, compared with the old record of -9.1C set in 2013.

And the Mackenzie area set a record -8.5C, breaking -5.5C set in 1990.

Even Vancouver saw a record low, though the mercury didn’t go below zero. Environment Canada recorded 1.6C at YVR on Wednesday, breaking the previous record of 2.8C from 1937.

Other areas that set cold-temperature records were Quesnel (-8.4C,) Lytton (-1.2C) and Lillooet (-2.9C).

The GSM continues its ramp up.

Prepare for global cooling.
