The mercury soared across the province Sunday.
Environment Canada Meteorologist Lisa Coldwells says it certainly was a record breaking day.
“Williams Lake got to the official temperature of 29.4 which broke the old record set in 1989 of 27.7 degrees Celsius. Still warm for a lot of other regions-Puntzi Mountain it was 30.9.”
Coldwells says that breaks the old record of 28.9 degrees set in 2009.
The hot spot in the province was Lytton at a scorching 38.5.
Environment Canada is forecasting warmer than average temperatures by 1-2 degrees across much of Canada this summer.
