If you thought Wednesday’s temperatures in Vancouver were abnormally cold, you likely weren’t the only one.
Amidst an unusually early blast of snowfall and winter storm warnings, several temperature records were broken across British Columbia – including Vancouver.
According to Environment Canada, yesterday’s low temperature in Vancouver hit a chilling 1.6°C, breaking an all-time low that’s stood in place since 1937 when temperature gauges hit 2.8°C.
Environment Canada’s BC office says a total of 39 daily records were broken across the province, some of which have stood in place since 1925.

Despite yesterday’s record lows, there’s still fair reason to believe that the climate will drive higher.
Let’s hope that yesterday’s cold snap isn’t a sign of things to come.
