Thanksgiving heat on Prairies

Omega pattern in jet stream keeps west mild

A ridge in the jet stream has made this Thanksgiving weekend feel more like summer in the Prairie provinces with temperatures in the low- to mid-20’s.

Some places climbed even higher, like Drumheller, Alberta, which hit 29°C on Sunday – the hottest spot in Canada.

On Saturday, the hot spot was in Brandon, Manitoba, at 25.8°C.

It was the warmest October 10 ever in places like Edmonton (24°C), Lloydminster, Alberta (23°C), and Prince Albert, Saskatchewan (22°C).
