Edmonton Breaks a 106 Year Old Record, Reaching a Temperature of 26.2° C on April 18th

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!


That El Niño sure is making things quite interesting for us this year. Do you reckon that climate change and global warming has something to do with all of this wild heat we’ve been experiencing extra early this year?
