The majority of Canada is suffering an unusual June chill this week, as the Arctic rides anomalously-far south on the back of an unpredictable ‘meridional’ jet stream flow.
Starting in British Columbia, just a week ago high temperature records were falling across Vancouver Island — temperatures on the Malahat, for example, reached 28.6C (83.5F) on Wednesday, June 2.
However, slapping B.C. back to some GSM reality comes this week’s descending polar cold.
On Sunday June 6, the mercury in Victoria –the capital city of B.C., located on the on the craggy southern end of Vancouver Island– reached a high of just 12.5C (54.5F).https://electroverse.net/canada-chills/
