Puntzi Mountain, about 180 kilometers west of Williams Lake, has been setting temperature records since 1959. Saturday’s low of -13.3°C surpassed the previous record of -11.1 set in 1970.

Nakusp, where records have been kept since 1966, also broke a 1970 record with a temperature of -4.4 on Saturday. The previous record from April 16 was -2.8.

Clinton’s low of -9.5 surpassed the record of -7.2 set in 1976, while Bella Bella’s previous record of -1.2 was set as recently as 2013. The village has seen temperatures reach -4.6 Saturday.

Some of the other records that fell on Saturday were over 100 years old.

Likewise, Quesnel, Nelson and Prince George have broken records since 1909, 1918 and 1927, respectively.

The oldest records to fall on Saturday, however, were in Vancouver and Princeton, which both saw low temperatures not seen on April 16 since the 19th century.

Vancouver’s temperature of -1.2 broke the previous record of -0.6 set in 1896, and lows in Princeton reached -8.4, surpassing the -6.7 seen in 1895.

Environment Canada says these temperature records are derived from “a selection of historical stations in each geographic area that were active during the recording period.”

While the data is considered preliminary, Environment Canada meteorologist Gregg Walters told CTV News on Saturday that’s because more data may still be collected, not because of concerns about the accuracy of the data. data already collected.

Walters attributed the recent cold snap to a combination of a trough over central and southern British Columbia and clear skies overnight. He said the current weather pattern is expected to gradually change over the coming week, with overnight low temperatures gradually becoming more seasonal.
