Yesterday Not One for the Record Book

Thursday, July 9, 2015 @ 10:25 AM

Prince George, B.C. – It was close, but the temperature failed to  set a new record for July 9th

“Yesterday, the maximum temperature in Prince George was 31.5 degrees”: says Environment Canada Meteorologist Trevor Smith.  “The old record for that date  was 33.9, set back in 1920.”

While it will be another  hot one today,  Smith  says  Prince George will  likely fall shy of breaking the record high for July 9th  which was 32.2 set in 1926 “We are forecasting a high  of 31 today, and we are pretty much on  track for the same temperature as yesterday,  so it looks  like we will  fall short of the  record mark.”

Smith says there is relief on the way,  as  cooler temperatures will be here tomorrow,   rain and thunderstorms  likely  developing late in the day “It’s a double edged sword” says Smith “We need the rain, but there will be lightning”   and that always presents a risk of new lightning sparked fires.


Must be a false reading heh Sage and Ataloss.

This will have you guys frothing at the mouth


How about those adjusted temperatures, also England, New Zealand and Australia meteorology bureaucracies have been caught adjusting temperatures.
