Kelowna broke a 31-year-old temperature record on Wednesday

It was a gorgeous Wednesday in Kelowna and now there’s a record to prove it.

According to Environment Canada, it was the hottest March 20 in town in more than three decades.

It reached 16.3°C in Kelowna, narrowly beating the previous record of 16.2°C that was set in 1988.

Temperature records Kelowna first started being kept in 1899, which means Wednesday was the hottest March 20 in Kelowna in 120 years.


Kelowna wasn’t the only Okanagan city to smash a record on Wednesday, as Vernon also hit a record high.

Vernon reached 15.8°C, beating the previous record of 15.6°C that was set all the way back in 1915.

Kelowna and Vernon were two of 48 temperature records set across British Columbia on Wednesday, following up 42 new records on Tuesday and 32 on Monday.
