Will be busy tonight so I'll just throw some numbers out there

Vancouver Victoria Abby
Sunday Low: -7 -5 -8
Monday High: 0 +1 -1
Monday Low: -9 -6 -11
Tuesday High: +1 +2 +0
Tuesday Low: -7 -6 -8
Wed high: +4 +4 +2
Wed Low: -5 -3 -6
Thursday High: +3 +3 +3
Thursday Low: -5 -4 -6

Coldest Temp in the province...hmmm. I'll go with Fort Nelson at -28. Unless we're including mountaintop weather stations in which case I have no idea.

Mostly random guesses and gut feeling :lol:

Also, it seems likely that Sunday evening will be colder than the morning. Question is, do we consider evening lows or stick with morning lows only? EC doesn't make any distinction.
