Thanks to a mild pacific flow of air, most of Saskatchewan is basking in the mild weather which officially came our way yesterday.
Mike Russo with Environment Canada says temperatures were well above normal for this time of the year. In fact Russo says, several daytime high records were broken.
“Yesterday, a number of stations set records,” Russo said. “Assiniboia, Broadview, Estevan, Meadow Lake as well as Rosetown. All set records for daytime highs.”
Russo says we could see the same thing again on Thursday.
“Regina’s record for today is 4.2C, and that was set in 1997,” Russo said. “We’re forecasting a high of 8C today. We are expecting to break that one. And Saskatoon, also a daytime high record of 5C and we’re forecasting 6C there.”
However, Russo says don’t expect much in the way of precipitation soon.
“Winter’s not over yet,” cautioned Russo. “We still have a ways to go. So as far as receiving any more accumulation goes, it’s more of a wait-and-see attitude.”
