Yesterday, Edmonton’s weather broke a record that dates back to the year 1910; one-hundred and six years ago! That previous record was 25.0° C.

April 18, 2016, Edmontonians felt the heat of the sun warm up the city’s core to a temperature of 26.2° C!

As if that weren’t wild enough, Grande Prairie, Alberta broke every record in recorded history yesterday, hitting temperatures as high as 29.4° C!
