Several low daytime high temperature records broken across the Interior Saturday

If you thought Saturday was unseasonably cold in the BC Interior, you would be right.

According to KelownaNow Meteorologist Wesla English, the region saw several low daytime high records broken yesterday. Kelowna, Kamloops, Clearwater, Penticton, Salmon Arm, and Vernon all set new record lows.

"A cool upper low over Southern BC produced chilly temperatures on Saturday, breaking record low daytime highs in several areas," wrote English.
