1960's....which year? I would have guessed 49-50, but I guess that was just one crazy cold month and not a season.

The winter of 1968/69 was the coldest winter the province has ever seen in the north. Lower Post in the north averaged -30.2C for the winter, which is a colder winter than it has ever been in Alberta, Saskatchwan, Ontario, Newfoundland, and until 2015, Quebec (Parc National Des Pingualuit averaged -30.2 in northern Quebec in 2014/15, shattering the old provincial record).

By comparison, the coldest winter ever recorded in Whitehorse, also in 68/69, was only -23.7C.

The winter of 49/50 was the third most extreme winter with a mean temperature of -27.87C at Smith River. In addition to 1968/69, Lower post edged this again in 71/72 with a winter average of -27.93C.

BTW, the coldest Spring, the coldest Summer, and the coldest Fall ever recorded in BC occurred in the 1955.

Most common location to record each province's hot spot: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid= ... ZRPkf9mDYI

Notice that Nunavut's hot spot is directly north of the NWT's hot spot.

Here's something interesting. In 2 provinces and 2 territories the place with the lowest average January minimum temperature is also the place that most often records the coldest extreme temperature (Jackson, NS; Tyne Valley, PEI; Eureka, NU; Mould Bay, NWT), but in all other cases, the place that most frequently records the low is to the south of the place with the coldest January lows.

For BC, the most frequent low location is in the bottom 1/3 of the province!

Okay, I just ran search of EC's database to see which year recorded the hottest July ever. I knew for sure that the record would be in southern Ontario or perhaps Spences Bridge, BC. But I was wrong! 1936 was INSANE! Both AB and SK recorded their hottest month ever that same time at 25.1 and 24.7 respectively! 25.1C is a benchmark that has only ever been met twice in Osooyoos.

Not surprising considering we were coming off the strongest El Nino in recorded history. Hopefully 2017 will buck the recent trend of continuous record setting warmth.
