If you’ve noticed more of a chill in the air this week, that’s because Vancouver’s cold weather is breaking records.

The last time Vancouver’s temperatures fell below zero in early October was 1916. The temperature fell to -0.7 degrees, during one of the first Thursdays of the month.

Flip forward to this Thursday morning in 2019 and you’ll find Vancouver was at -0.7 degrees as well. That marks it as the coldest October 10 in Vancouver since 1916.

Wednesday’s weather was no different. At one degree near YVR airport, it was the coldest day this year since April 25.

“With a ~4am min of 0.8°C, today is Vancouver’s coldest Oct 9th since records began in 1898,” tweeted YVR Weather Records yesterday.

Luckily, the forecast promises to quit breaking records soon. Warmer weather arrives Friday, so we can (hopefully) stick to temperatures over 0 degrees.

Here’s hoping for a warmer Thanksgiving weekend!
