Record lows hit southern Sask. as April felt more like early March this morning

If it was January, it would’ve been quite a pleasant morning on Friday.

However considering we’re a week away from May, it was a bone chilling morning in many communities across Saskatchewan.

In fact Environment Canada’s Terri Lang says a 112-year-old record was broken in Moose Jaw.

“Moose Jaw squeaked by their old record of -13.3 by reaching -13.6, but that breaks a record set way back in 1909, the records go back to 1894,” Lang said.

Records were also broken in Saskatoon, Lucky Lake, Rosetown, and Yorkton, who reached -11, breaking a record set back in 1967.

Lang said clear sky’s and calm winds is what allows for the temperatures to continue to drop through the overnight and early morning hours.

The average last frost for the city of Regina is around May 24th, the normal daytime high for the Queen City this time of year is about 15 C.
