#Vancouver has #coldest Oct. 10 in 123 years as #temperatures tumble across B.C. #Canada

Record Cold Alert

Parts of British Columbia are enduring record-breaking chill.

Environment Canada says the temperature at Vancouver International Airport dipped to 0.7 C Monday morning.

“That’s the coldest Oct. 10 in 123 years, so this is pretty significant,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Matt MacDonald.

It was the second record in two days for Vancouver, which saw thermometers dip to 0.8 C Wednesday, wiping out the old record of 2.8, which had stood since 1960.

The weather office says clear skies and a cold front helped set several other winter-like records across B.C.

“We’ve broken a total of 41 temperature records across B.C. in the last 2 days,” said MacDonald.

Those include a mark of -10.3 C in Clinton on Wednesday, breaking a 2009 record, and -8.2 C in Smithers, smashing the old record set in 1959.

The average historical low for Vancouver in the second week of October is 7 C.
