Century Old Weather Record Broken in Prince George

Wednesday, February 15, 2017 @ 4:00 PM

Prince George, B.C. – If you thought it was a little warmer than usual today you are correct.

Environment Canada has confirmed a 100-year-old weather record has fallen in Prince George. Today’s high of 12 degrees tops the previous high of 10.6 degrees this day back in 1916. The lowest temperature this day was minus 45 in 1936.

According to meteorologist Alyssa Charbonneau the warm weather is expected to persist through tomorrow.

“Yes, we’re still looking at this warm, moist air that has brought some subtropical air over the south coast. Lots of rain for us and it’s brought the warm temperatures into the Interior. It will still be with us tomorrow as there’s a forecasted high of 9.”

Temperatures on Friday are expected to drop to a high of 4 degrees while the high on Saturday and Sunday is forecasted to reach plus 3.


It’s beautiful out there today. Nice to see most of the snow from the weekend melted

It is surprising just how fast it goes. Tons of snow Friday….all but melted by Wednesday.

At this rate I’ll have my motorbike on the road by the end of the month.

    X2 for my Harley, but I am not going to get too excited. I still expect another dump!

-20 last week to +12 this week is pretty odd, so was the 1-2 day snowfall which was the most snow i’ve seen in the past 3-4 months

Yet another high temperature record falls… anyone remember when the last cold record temperature was broken for Prince George? Seem we are breaking record warm temps frequently, nor so much the cold temps. Hey?

    Must be the Liberals fault and I am sure if the NDP took over it would swing the other way, well because hell would have to freeze over for that to happen.

    The Mail on Sunday today reveals astonishing evidence that the organisation that is the world’s leading source of climate data rushed to publish a landmark paper that exaggerated global warming and was timed to influence the historic Paris Agreement on climate change.

    Wind and solar power disappeared in January

    Meanwhile the online Die Welt N24 here reports how wind and solar power practically completely disappeared over a period of weeks during the dead of winter in Germany — as a high pressure system with fog and windless days persisted over much of central Europe — and “brought Germany’s power supply at the limit“.

    The German site writes that renewable energy lobbyists prefer to be silent during the long and dark winter months, adding: “In January the German green energy systems as power suppliers went almost totally AWOL weeks long“:

      breaking links like you post on /pol or something

    I guess there must have been global warming back then too!

    Were you even here this winter? It may not have broke records, but it was one of the coldest I can remember since I was a kid. 2+ weeks of 25-30 below, then warms up, 3 more weeks of sub -20.. just a brutal winter this year.

If this is Global warming/Climate change or whatever the alarmists are calling it this year I am loving this warm weather, bring it on!!!

So BH Prince George is the center of your universe, okay then.

How’s your mining claims coming along?

Oh my goodness, you mean to tell me that we had global warming back in 2016 too?

Guess global warming is increasing. Crispy will be raising the carbon tax to control the warming.

The loggers and the mills must be sweating bullets about now. Breakup is a month early.

    Millyards low on inventory too, from what I’ve seen.

    There are warm spells and cold spells every winter. More cooler weather on the way and no road bans yet. A little premature on the breakup call.

The enviro terrorists should be able to pick this up and run with it and twist i into something it really isn’t

The Kimberly community Sunmine is making them money and a great deal more indipendant . It’s not about ideology . It’s about money . Sooner or later the deniers will understand the fact that they are have their very own Kodak moment . Anybody wanna go back to paying for film/processing ? Perhaps one day PG will understand how to make money like other community’s in the world are doing . Even right here in bc .

1916 they had a guy looking at mercury in a bubble and rod, today we have a computer monitoring weather equipment. There is a difference, the guy looking at the thermometer could have misread or even been on a schedule and missed the high of the day back then. In any case 101 years ago it was just as warm as yesterday? Hardly a champion for global warming – aren’t we supposed to be 2 degrees warmer?

1916 there were a lot less politicians spewing hot air .

coincidence ??
