With the continued warm weather across much of Saskatchewan, ten more records were broken on Thursday.
Environment Canada’s Dan Folton said the hot-spot was Maple Creek where the mercury climbed to 11 degrees.
Folton said Regina tied their record set back in 1991, reaching a high of 4.2.
He added the warm weather is thanks to warm pacific air hovering over much of the prairies.
“There’s a really large low pressure system that’s actually off the British Columbia coast,” Folton said.
“What that’s been doing is altering the flow of the atmosphere so that the has been a southwest flow of air over the prairies, that air is also coming from the Pacific,” he added.
The longest standing record to fall was in Saskatoon where a high of 5.7 was record , beating out the old record of 5.0 set back in 1923.
The normal daytime high is about minus 11 in the queen city.
Environment Canada is expecting the warm spell to last for another five or six days before temperatures closer to seasonal values return.
