Wanted to let you know that it looks like Port Alberni set a new record for extreme low temperature for February 25.
The old record was set at Robertson Creek Hatchery in 1993 at -10C.
This morning the Environment Canada station at the Airport registered -11C.
So that makes it a record.
The record for February is -15C on February 19th at the old Airport on the river in 1986. And the alltime record low for Port Alberni is -22C at Robertson Creek on January 30, 1969.
As I said last night, there is snow on the way tomorrow. It should start around noontime and pickup steam through the evening. There is a possibility for up to 15cm by Sunday.
BTW: It’s unlikely we will break a record tomorrow morning. The current record for February 26th is -11.7 at McCoy Lake in 1962. We’re only slated to get down to -10C at the airport. You never know, but it’s doubtful.
