Weather records were set in several regions across Saskatchewan on Tuesday. And we can thank a Pacific air mass which planted itself overtop of the prairies.
Many regions in Saskatchewan set daytime highs on Tuesday:
- Collins Bay’s new record of 2.3C removes a very old record from 1891 of 01.2C.
- Elbow reached 4.5C taking out 1958’s record of 3.9C.
- It was mild also in Key Lake with a new record high of 4C. Back in 2009, the record was 0.4C.
- La Ronge’s new temperature soared to 6C. It was all the way back to 1928 when a record of 2.2C was set.
- Double-digits for Maple Creek. Their new record reached 13.4C. In 1923, a record of 10.6 was reached.
- Stoney Rapids also recorded a new daytime high of 1.3C beating the old record of -3.3C set in 1965.
- Watrous got into the record books with a new high of 4.2C taking out a 2014 record of 2.7C set.
Regina’s has a daytime high of 4.2C for this day in 1991. The Queen City’s forecast high Wednesday is 4C.
With a gusty southwest wind in the forecast for Wednesday, there’s a good chance this could be broken.
