Prairies set heat records

Much of the Prairies has been enjoying one of the warmest Septembers on record and for some areas it is proving to be the warmest period of the summer.

During the first full day of fall yesterday, new heat records were set in dozens of communities.

Calgary hit 33.2 C (old record 29.7 C set in 1990)

Edmonton hit 34.0 C (old record 29.1 C set in 1997)                        

Saskatoon hit 32.0 C and Regina hit 30.3 C

Environment Canada senior climatologist Dave Phillips says temperatures have never been so warm so late in the year.
