Record heat in Chilliwack last Thursday

It was the warmest November day in 39 years — which may be hard to believe given the frost

Last week on Thursday Nov. 6 had the mercury reaching a record-breaking 19.6 C in Chilliwack

It’s hard to believe this week now that things are much cooler.

But the record-busting heat weather-watchers in Chilliwack saw this past summer is continuing into the fall to some degree.

Last week on Thursday Nov. 6 had the mercury reaching a record-breaking 19.6 C.

That was 8.9 C above normal, and the warmest Chilliwack day on record this late in the fall, said Roger Pannett, volunteer weather observer for Environment Canada.

It was actually the “warmest November day in 39 years,” since the maximum of 20.6 C was reached on Nov. 4, 1975.

Previous high max for the day was 17.8 C in 1960.

There was also a ‘high mean’ record set for the day, at 14.55 C which is seven degrees above normal. Previous ‘high mean’ was 13.25 C in 2006.
