Cold but not record cold temperatures in the Cariboo this week

That’s how Environment Canada’s Geoff Coulson describes the overnight temperatures in the Cariboo early this week.

“For Quesnel for example, down to 3.1 for the overnight low on Tuesday morning.  Normal low for this time of year is about 8 degrees so well below normal.  But if you look back in the record books the record for that date in history still stands at -1.1 set all the way back in 1910.”

Coulson says it was the same story for Williams Lake.

“For Williams Lake they got down to 5.2 for the overnight low on Monday morning. The record for that day in history, -1.3 set back in 1992.  Another chilly morning yesterday (Tuesday) morning down to 5.3 and the record for that date in history -0.8 also set back in 1992.”

While the overnight lows have bounced back to more seasonable numbers later in the week, Coulson says the daytime highs in the Cariboo are forecasted to be much lower than normal for today and tomorrow.

“Daytime high for Quesnel only expected to be about 17 on Thursday.  Normal high for this year is about 25 so we’re going to be well off that, and then cool again on Friday with a high of 19.”
