While it was a scorcher in the Cariboo yesterday, not quite hot enough to set any temperature records.
Matt McDonald, a Meteorologist with Environment Canada, starts off in Quesnel…
“the high was 30.7 degrees yesterday afternoon and that’s a full 10 degrees higher than normal for this of year. Unfortunately, it was not quite a record. We were a full one degree shy of the all-time record for June 7th.”
The record for Quesnel is 31.7 set back in 1923.

McDonald says it was 28.5 degrees at its peak in Williams Lake yesterday…even closer to the record of 29.2 from 2003.
And what a difference a day makes as the sunshine has left us and been replace with a severe thunderstorm watch.
