It was a cold day to start the week, that much was obvious and the record books are being changed as a result.
15 record lows are being re-written by Environment Canada today after the arctic air took many communities down past -30. Val Marie was the coldest in the province at -44 before adding in the wind chill factor. Moose Jaw hit -33 at one point but the historical record low was -41 set in 1936.
Strong southwest winds are blowing in a new system of warmer air that should take us up to slightly above normal for this time of the year, even approaching the freezing mark. With the system comes a chance of some snow as well, but so far there's no significant accumulation expected.
