Cold weather breaks more records in Thompson-Okanagan

More weather records fall

While frigid temperatures are now easing, another 41 low temperature records were broken across B.C. yesterday.

Records fell right across the Thompson-Okanagan, with an exception in Vernon and the North Okanagan.

Temperatures are expected to gradually warm over the weekend before finally getting above zero on Monday in the Okanagan and Kamloops.

The warming temperatures are leading to warnings about severe freezing rain in the Lower Mainland over the next 36 hours and travel between the BC Interior and coast is not recommended.
