What a difference a few days can make when it comes to the weather in Saskatchewan.
Saskatchewan people have gone from gritting their teeth through frigid cold, to shedding the layers and rolling down the car windows in a January thaw.
Environment Canada confirmed five communities across the province broke or tied heat records as temperatures soared above O C on Wednesday.
Saskatoon broke a record which had stood for nearly a century reaching 5.4 C, surpassing the old mark set back in 1923.
Watrous, Wynard, Kindersley also set new records, while Elbow tied its record.
The warm air that’s behind the mid-January thaw will continue for a few more days according meteorologist Mike Russo.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw more records break today.”
The expected high for Saskatoon Thursday is 6 C, while Regina could break a record with a high of 8 C.
