While most of us in the Lower Mainland are used to bundling up in November, Tuesday’s weather was surprisingly balmy and warm and almost felt like the remnants of a summer’s day. It was so nice, that a giant rainbow even made an appearance across the city.

According to the Environment Canada’s weather summaries, Tuesday’s warm temperatures set 24 new records across BC.

Vancouver reached 19.4°breaking the November 8, 1991 record of  14.8°C and November 4, 1980 record of 18.4°C.

Other record-breaking cities across the province included:

  • Abbotsford: 22.4 °C (old record 15.6 °C in 1952)
  • Victoria: 19 °C  (old record 15.1 °C in 1996)

Unfortunately, the sunny, warm November weather won’t last long.

Environment Canada predicts rain for the remainder of the week in Vancouver (but what else is new).
