Vancouver – Coldest Oct 10 in 123 years – 2nd cold record in two days

Temperatures tumble across B.C. At least 41 records broken across province in 2 days.

“That’s the coldest Oct. 10 in 123 years, so this is pretty significant,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Matt MacDonald.

It was the second record in two days for Vancouver, which saw thermometers dip to 0.8 C Wednesday, wiping out the old record of 2.8, which had stood since 1960.

The average historical low for Vancouver in the second week of October is 7 C.

“We’ve broken a total of 41 temperature records across B.C. in the last 2 days,” said MacDonald.

Those include the -10.3 C in Clinton on Wednesday, which broke a 2009 record, and -8.2 C in Smithers, which smashed the old record set in 1959.
