Fort St. John sets record high temperature

Saturday’s high of 7.7, just missed matching the 2007 record, of 7.9, for that day.

Today we’re not expected to do any better than Minus 8, which puts us back near the regional, seasonal norm, but still about 35 degrees warmer than the record low for this day.

That’s Minus 43.3, and it was set in 1966 but it is not the coldest ever January temperature recorded in this area.  That’s Minus 47.2, and it is also the coldest ever reading taken at the airport weather station—on January 30th of 1947—which means this coming Thursday marks, the 67th anniversary of that post.
