It’s been chilly, to say the least.
Two B.C. communities broke records for reaching new below-freezing temperatures Monday, according to Environment Canada, due to an arctic ridge making its way across the province.
Sechelt reached -7.5 C, breaking a record of -7 C from 1986.
In Yoho National Park, temperatures dipped to -32.7 C, about four degrees cooler than the former record of -28.5 C set back in 2011.
Despite the rest of B.C. not reaching historically cold temperatures, some are faring better than others in the cold.
