Record Setting Temperature In Parts Of The Cariboo

We could see another record setting temperature in at least part of the Cariboo today.

Lisa Coldwells, a Meteorologist with Environment Canada, says the forecasted high of 26 degrees would break a record of 25.8 in Williams Lake set back on May 2nd in 1998.

However she says there is a caveat to that.

She says records for the Lake City only go back to 1960 and not 1892 like Quesnel.

Coldwells says the record for Quesnel is 30 degrees in 1937 so they’re not sure what the temperature was in Williams Lake in 1937.

One thing she is sure of is that it is a lot warmer than normal in the Cariboo.

The normal high for early May is just 17 degrees.

Coldwells says there will be a bit of a cool down in the middle of this week before a ridge of high pressure returns for the weekend.

She says that will mean more sunshine and highs back in the high 20’s.
