With weather records being broken all over Manitoba Wednesday, it's good to know the warm streak's staying put through the weekend.
Not as hot as Wednesday, of course, but it's forecast to be a good 10 degrees Celsius higher than normal just about everywhere in southern Manitoba.
On Wednesday, Winnipeg blasted through a 93-year-old weather record when the temperature tracked up to 18.8 C. That's about 20 degrees higher than average. The previous record, set in 1923, was 14.4 C.
Environment Canada recorded 25 other places in Manitoba that basked in warmth, toppling records like dominoes.
McCreary hit an astonishing 22 degrees. The old record, set there in 1994, was 11.
Daughin hit 20.5, double the last record set in 2009, at 10.2.
Brandon, likewise, with 17.2, broke its last record, 13.3, set back in 1930.
By dawn, those temperatures were tracking east. Thunder Bay on Thursday had a temperature of 10 as the sun rose, the hot spot for the country at that hour.
It's still warm here; Environment Canada recorded Winnipeg at 6 with a high forecast for 12, under sunny skies.
The warmth is staying put through Remembrance Day Friday and the Santa Claus parade Sunday, with highs ranging from 10 to 12.
By next Tuesday, we'll dropping back to more seasonable temperatures, with a high forecast for 5.
The normal high this time of year is 1; low is -7.
