Balmy 17 º breaks Victoria Record
from Times Colonist November 28, 2014
Victoria blasted through its record-high temperature for Nov. 27 on Thursday. The old record was 13.3 C set in 1946. Thursday's temperature reached 17 C at 11 a.m. and was a Canadian high.
"We have some tropical flow from the vicinity of Hawaii bringing moisture and warmth across the south coast," said Canada Environment meteorologist Doug Lundquist. The record high for the month is 18.3C, set on Nov. 5, 1975.
Colder weather is on the way. Temperatures are forecast to dip to minus 2 today and there's a chance of snow flurries on Saturday.
Two days later we had snow and about a week of cooler temperatures. As I type this we are back to the just above freezing temperatures and light rain.
I have been in the kitchen trying out a new recipe for Sauerbraten. I made spatzle to have with it, but missed getting some red cabbage to complete the meal. The Sauerbraten was very tender and very rich tasting. The day before we had this scrumptious Mousaka. Of course there are left overs of both.
