Saskatoon saw a 115 year-old record fall, while Estevan tied their cold-weather record at -1.7°C set in 1965.
Meteorologist Terri Lang said there were a couple places that tied for the cold spot in Saskatchewan over night.
“With the temperatures that we’ve had come in, it looks like it was a tie between Broadview and Prince Albert, so -4°C was the coldest temperature recorded there,” Lang said. “We also had some cold pockets, Pilger, Nipawin close to -3°C.”
According to Environment Canada, the following places broke records Wednesday morning.
Nipawin at -3.5°C broke record of -2.3°C in 1991
Saskatoon at -1.3°C broke record of -1.1°C in 1903
Elbow at -1.3°C broke record of -1.1°C in 1965
Lucky Lake at -0.9°C broke record of +1.1°C in 1972
Last Mountain Lake at -2.9°C broke record of -0.1°C in 1991
Moose Jaw at -2.8°C broke record of -2.2°C in 1896
Rockglen at +2.6°C broke record of +3.3°C in 1975
Coronach at -2.6°C broke record of -2.2°C in 1965
Indian Head at -3.3°C, broke record of -1.7°C in 1903
Lang said warm weather is on the way later this week.
“I think we’ll have another cool night (Wednesday night), so we could see a bit more patchy frost, but it looks like it’s more towards the northeastern part of the province, and we’ll see a return to warmer weather.”
Here in Regina, the coldest in got was -2.2°C. The normal low for this time of year is +5°C.
