The Clinton area, which includes 100 Mile House ended up breaking their temperature record yesterday (September 26th).
The previous record was set in 2003, where it was 22 degrees, with yesterday breaking the record by one degree.
“Around this time of year, our general day time temperatures are usually in the mid to high teens for this area.” says Derek Lee, meteorologist for Environment and Climate Change Canada.
“However, with a ridge of high pressure bringing us fair weather and mainly sunny skies over the last few days, we did get a chance to see more sun, and more heat to build on that.”
The Clinton area also looks to reach the 23 degree mark today as well, where Lee said if it were to pan out that way, another record could be broken for them as well.
As for Williams Lake and Quesnel breaking any records, nothing had been broken.
Temperature records across the province can be found here.
Lee added that it wouldn’t be out of the question for today and over the next few days. This will come with the help of more high pressure coming in before the weekend.
