Indeed possible, though I wouldn't say probably.

Your best bet is to monitor for a few days, especially when it gets colder and around supertime.
Ch. 116 is another of those anomaly chs. so that's ok. I'll send you a list of them by PM (but you won't be able to reply, my PMs are off due to too many private enquiries :-/ ).

That's still too far too low for Quality, Geoff's recipe should help further.
