Some Western Canadians are swapping their parkas for T-shirts and raincoats after swinging from record high temperatures to record lows and back again this winter.

“It’s been a bit of a weather whiplash scenario,” said Armel Castellan, a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC).

In B.C., West Vancouver and Abbotsford set all-time January temperature records Tuesday amid an atmospheric river event, hitting 18.2 and 17.3 C, respectively. More than 30 spots across B.C. broke daily records, according to ECCC.

But it’s not all sunshine. The southwestern portion of the province is facing heavy rain, with ECCC warning of flooding, pooling water and landslides through midweek for Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast, Vancouver and Howe Sound.

B.C.’s River Forecast Centre expanded a flood warning to include the Lillooet River, and by Tuesday afternoon, the Village of Pemberton had declared a local state of emergency and issued an evacuation order for several properties.

The next wave of precipitation is expected Wednesday morning, Castellan said.
