It is interesting that the the 2000 decade was the hottest on record, but the previous 3 decades before that were the coolest on record.

Here's an interesting map.

Not making the cut are Lillooet (too wet in both winter and fall), Penticton (too wet in summer), Lytton (too wet in winter and fall), Peachland (too wet in winter), and Cache Creek (too wet in summer).

The place with the warmest winter in Canada is always found in BC, but did you know that the warmest summer and fall are most often found Ontario?
