9 daily temperature records broken in BC on first day of October

October is here and with that comes cooler nights and darker mornings.

However, nine daily temperature records were broken on the first day of the month.

Environment Canada explains that a ridge of high pressure is causing the warmer fall temperatures for parts of the province.

Those locations range from the interior to the coast with Clearwater, north of Kamloops, breaking a nearly 100 year old temperature record that was set in 1923.

Hope and Port Alberni also broke daily records from 1987.

Here is a look at all the daily temperature records that were broken on Saturday:

  • Cache Creek (26.6°C) – old record of 26.3°C set in 2012

  • Clearwater (24.8ºC) – old record of 23.9ºC set in 1923

  • Comox (23ºC) – old record of 22.9ºC set in 1992

  • Courtenay (23ºC) – old record of 22.9ºC set in 1992

  • Hope (28.8ºC) – old record of 27.7ºC set in 1987

  • Lytton (27.3ºC) – old record of 26.9ºC set in 2003

  • Merritt (27.9ºC) – old record of 27.8ºC set in 1975

  • Port Alberni (28ºC) – old record of 26.5ºC set in 1987
