Campbell River got a brief preview to summer last weekend as temperatures soared to over 20 C.

The high on Sat., May 9 was recorded to be 24.8 C at 5 p.m. by Environment Canada.

On Sunday, the high of 26.9 C was hit at 3 p.m.

While Sunday’s high came close to breaking a temperature record, it wasn’t quite enough to beat the historical high of 27. 5 C set in 2019. The historical low for the same day was set in 1973, when the mercury dipped to -1.7 C.
