Greater Trail baked by record- setting heat

Yes, the weekend was a scorcher in Trail and set a record for the month of June.

Yes, the weekend was a scorcher in Trail and set a record for the month of June.

That said, it’s debatable whether Sunday’s 41.1 C recorded at the Warfield station was the hottest day ever in the city, says forecaster Ron Lakeman.

“There’s nothing we can go back to,” he explained. “The problem is the Warfield station was recently installed (2003) and we don’t have much more than 20 years history.”

He said previous high temperatures were recorded at various Trail locations and when comparing climate records, data must come from the same station.

“So you can make comparisons but sometimes it’s not exactly apples to apples,” he noted. “I would be comfortable in saying it’s (41.1 C) a record for the month of June, it’s just debatable whether it’s the hottest Trail has ever been.”
