**^^ Missing Data from Airport, Alberniweather broke existing Airport record temperature. Temperature at Alberniweather will be different. Usually Alberniweather underestimates temperatures in summer compared to Airport.
**Short Term means since 1995 at the new AVRA Airport.
 Airport Records are compared to the 30+ year weather stations of record since 1900 (1895 for rain) at Beaver Creek, Port Alberni "City" and Robertson Creek.  Note that records pre 1950 may be more likely to over-estimate high temperatures.

MOST SIMILAR ALBERNIWEATHER NOVEMBER TO THIS MONTH?  2009

2009 was a very similar year in terms of average highs and mean temperatures it was a little cooler on the low side though. In terms of rain, it was maybe not quite as bad, but probably felt just as soggy as this year!
