Vancouver hadn’t seen an Oct. 9 this cold since 1935 — 84 years ago. Back then, temperatures dipped to 1.1 C. Prior to that, temperatures dipped to zero degrees in 1916.

If you felt like fall came unseasonably early in the Lower Mainland, you aren’t alone.

Not only have there been many dreary, rainy days, but there have also been a number of downpours. Vancouverites witnessed an intense downpour around 4 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 9 that caused flash flooding in parts of the city. As a matter of fact, Vancouver received over twice the average rainfall for September.
