On Wednesday, March 20, a jaw-dropping 48 weather records were broken across B.C. What’s more, some areas saw soaring highs of nearly 26°C.

For example, the Agassiz Area broke its old record of 21.7°C set in 1915 with a summery high of 25.8°C. Likewise, the Squamish Area broke its old record of 21°C set in 1999 with a toasty 25.9°C daily high.

The Weather Network has updated its spring forecast for the province, and it calls for warmer weather as well as, “a heightened threat for flooding from rapid snow melt in the alpine regions.”
