eather extremes are becoming more commonplace. For example, January is supposed to be the coolest month of the year with an average daytime high of 5C and overnight low of 0C in Chilliwack.

But this year, a mid-winter warm spell is thawing thermometers across the city and the balmy weather is expected to continue for the next several days with daytime highs reaching about 10C and peaking Tuesday at 11C.

As freakishly warm as 11C sounds, it's still not a local record.

In January 2009, the mercury rocketed up to 12.7C and in 2012 dipped to -13.8 C, the warmest and coldest months respectively since 1990.
