According to a Tweet from Rolf Campbell, a weather historian and forecaster who gathers data from Environment Canada, Tuesday at noon was also the driest hour since June 2, 2019.
Campbell runs numerous Twitter accounts, such as @YYJ_Weather for Victoria, that focus on weather records for Saint Johns, Halifax, Winnipeg and other Canadian cities.
