Summer in November: Record warm weather for Vancouver

Nov 9 2016, 6:55 pm

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.
