For a fifth day in a row, more daily weather records were set across the province, as above-normal temperatures continued from a warm airmass hovering over B.C.

According to Environment Canada, seven places across the province set new records for Feb. 1, including Vancouver, which reached 13.6 C, narrowly eclipsing its previous mark of 13.3 C, set in 1941.

Interestingly, the hotspot in B.C. on Thursday was West Vancouver, where the mercury climbed to 14.8 C. However, that did not eclipse the community’s record of 15.1 C, set in 1998.
