A meteorologist from Environment Canada says there is a good chance we will set a new temperature record today. The forecasted high is a whopping 10 degrees.
Meteorologist Samantha Mauti notes, “We're sitting under an upper ridge, which is usually associated with warm temperatures. A normal high temperature is about –11 degrees Celsius for that end of January, early February time frame. For the rest of this week, we have temperatures forecast above 0. So yeah, well outside the normal for this time of year."
Looking ahead, Mauti says we can expect temperatures to dip closer to zeros on Thursday and Friday, then spike back up to four degrees on Saturday. She notes next week should be cooler, but still above average.
