Vancouver - Lowest Temperature for Each Year





Here's where you'll find answers to your questions about the lowest temperatures and coldest days in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. For instance: When was the last time Vancouver got colder than -10 °C? How cold did Vancouver get in 2017 or a century ago?

This page gives the lowest temperature for each year in Vancouver and the date that it happened. A date with a plus sign beside it means the lowest temperature also occurred on at least one other day earlier that year.

These records go back to 1900, with just a few years missing data. The lowest temperature measured during that time was -18 degrees Celsius (0 Fahrenheit) on December 29, 1968 and January 14, 1950.

Since 1939 the temperature extremes were observed at Vancouver International Airport. Before then, the weather station was near the city centre at Stanley Park.
