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
