Kamloops This Week

November has been springlike through the first third of the month, with double-digit highs every day, spiking to a record-breaking 21.5 C on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

Tuesday’s high shattered the previous record for warmest Nov. 8 in Kamloops, which was 15.5 C in 1980.

The mark of 21.5 C also came within striking distance of the warmest November day ever recorded in Kamloops, which was 23.3 C in 1975, according to Environment Canada data.

And, Tuesday’s high temperature surpassed the high mark on 11 days in the summer months of June, July and August.
