As for afternoon temperatures, we had a typical October this year, with an average of 12.4C for daytime highs last month, just a degree off from the seasonal conditions of 13.4C. Overnight lows were on the mild side, with October 2020’s average at 4.0C, compared to seasonal lows of 1.3C.

All monthly statistics in this article are based on data from the weather station at UBCO, and the seasonal statistics in this article are based on the Canadian climate normals 1981-2010 data.

With our stable weather pattern sticking around for the first couple days of November 2020, we are expecting dry weather for today and tomorrow, but the risk of showers return on Tuesday.
