It certainly has felt more like summer than the beginning of Fall in the Cariboo.
Environment Canada Meteorologist Derek Lee said the temperatures in October have been 5 to 10 degrees above average per day.
Although daytime highs are not as high as they were earlier in the month, Lee noted there is a potential to break new records this weekend in the Cariboo.
“So when we’re looking at daytime highs in the high teens to 20 degrees it does pose a potential to break new records. For this weekend we are looking at sunny skies extending all the way out into late next week and the temperature hovering around 19 degrees.” Lee said, “To break a record we would have to be around 19.5 to 20 degrees on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.”
Lee added that the Region should have warmer-than-average temperatures for the next few days but right now it’s looking like a more Fall-like and stormier pattern can return by next Friday.
“The nighttime period can be a little bit chilly with lows of 5 degrees,” Lee said, “and there is also the chance of fog in the next few days for the valleys.”
