KAMLOOPS — We didn't quite hit the record, but Environment Canada says it appears this month will be the second warmest on record for Kamloops.

Forecaster Ross MacDonald says the mildest-ever November happened in 1899, with a mean temperature of 7.9 degrees Celsius.

MacDonald says November of 2016 will almost certainly come in second.

"As it stands through 29 days we are sitting at 7.6°C, so we are likely on track for the second warmest November on record at this point, but we will see how the final numbers come in tomorrow. It looks like we won't quite make it to the warmest, but number two is not so bad," explained MacDonald.

MacDonald adds Kamloops reached double-digit highs on 18 days this month, when that would typically only happen five or six times during November.
