It’s been nearly a month since spring began, yet the temperature seems to have forgotten the memo.
While it hasn’t been overly cold in the Cariboo, Derek Lee, Meteorologist with Environment Canada, says we’ve seen better.
“The first half of April has definitely been colder, and for the Williams Lake and Quesnel area, this week in particular, we’re seeing temperatures starting at five degrees below normal.”
“During this time of year, we usually see highs of around 15 degrees and lows just at 0 degrees.”
Lee added that once we approach the weekend is when we’ll see temperatures reach around 14 to 16 degrees.
Though the warm temperature will come with a catch, as rain will most likely follow, since it’ll be warm moist air from the pacific.
