May poised to be West Kootenay’s driest on record

Two new record high temperatures have been established in the West Kootenay this week and another may fall today.

It hit 27.9 degrees on Wednesday and 30.3 yesterday in Castlegar, breaking old marks set in 1985.

Lakeman says the weekend is expected to be mostly sunny with rain possibly arriving Monday afternoon.
