This holiday season, all of our Supporters are entered to win an $800 Shopping Spree Giveaway!

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Fort St. John and Dawson Creek saw record-breaking temperatures on October 17th. 

It’s been a warm October all over the Peace region this year, but apparently, it’s been warmer than usual in a few spots across the region. 

According to Environment Canada, on October 17th, Fort St. John saw a high of 22.3 degrees Celsius, and Dawson Creek peaked at 25.5 degrees Celsius. 

Both of these temperatures break the previous daily records in the cities, said Environment Canada.

Environment Canada confirmed that both previous daily records were set in 2018. Fort St. John’s previous record was 19.4 degrees Celsius, and Dawson Creek’s was 20.7 degrees Celsius.
