Pineapple Express brings record high temperatures to B.C. today
If you’ve noticed it feels warmer this Tuesday morning, you are right.
A Pineapple Express is bringing extremely mild subtropical air to B.C.
Global BC meteorologist Mark Madryga says morning temperatures are already in the mid-to-upper teens in the Metro Vancouver region.
Record high temperatures will be set in the Lower Mainland, Thompson, Okanagan and Cariboo/Prince George regions today, breaking records set generations ago.
The record high for today at Vancouver Airport is 15 degrees, set in 1991, and as of 6 a.m. this morning it was already 15 degrees.
Madryga says don’t expect these temperatures to stick around however. Readings will be a few degrees cooler on Wednesday.
