augtober comes to an end, and what an augtober it was
October was 2.5 C warmer than normal but we're expecting some record cold now
feeling hot hot hot
Surprising no one who was still harvesting their gardens on October 31, this past month was unusually warm in Prince George — with an average mean temperature of 7 degrees C, compared to the average of 4.5 C, a 2.5 C increase.
Likewise, there was significantly less rain. Only 6.5 mm of precipitation fell, 10 per cent of the normal 63.3 mm. In both cases, the records go back to 1912.
Anyways, that warm streak has clearly broken and Environment Canada is now warning of -14 C temperature by next week so it’s time to bring your plants in.
Here are the provincial charts provided by Environment Canada:
Tourism PG: “Do you have a new tourism idea for #NorthernBC? You could be selected to receive a $3,000 seed grant, mentorship and additional partner support to help get you started!” Deets and registration for 11:30 am session.
Flu vaccine clinics: I’ve seen concerns about the difficulty of accessing flu shots, so hopefully this helps.
