Record breaking cold swept across much of Saskatchewan Monday morning.
According to Meteorologist Terri Lang, Regina and Moose Jaw dropped to -11 C and -10 C, breaking records set back in the late 1940’s.
However when asked about a warm up, Lang was optimistic for later this week.
“It looks like we’ll be back to the high teens and even over the 20 degree mark later this week,” Lang said. “More seasonal and right where we are suppose to be,” she added.
Assiniboia, Elbow, Last Mountain Sanctuary and Lucky Lake along with a handful of communities in the north also broke records.
Lang said a ridge of arctic air pressure that settled over top of the prairie provinces can be claimed for the cold, adding record lows were also broken in Manitoba Monday morning.
The normal daytime high in Regina this time of year is 19 C, while the low is plus 3 C.
