Unusual Cold Snap to End

The cold stretch of temperatures that have grappled the Cariboo-Chilcotin will be coming to an end on Monday.

Meteorologist Ross MacDonald with Environment Canada says although it certainly was a chilly one, no records were broken.

He says temperatures needed to push even colder-between minus 35-40, to break any records.

Friday’s overnight record low was achieved back in 1964 with a temperature of minus 38.3 without the windchill.

MacDonald says a flow pattern coming from the North and that has been near the North, Yukon, and the Balfour Sea for nearly 2 weeks, will be making a switch to a more mildly, westerly flow.

The BC Coroners Service says the unusual temperatures may have been the cause of 2 deaths in the region.
