While it may feel to some like the longest, coldest winter in history, it’s not. Thursday, however, was one for the books throughout Saskatchewan.
The cold snap set records across the province. In Meadow Lake, a new benchmark of -43.8 C was established for Feb. 26, beating the previous record of -40 C set in 1996. Nipawin (-37 C) and Wynyard (-34.6 C) also set records Thursday. On Friday morning Broadview (-41.9 C), Assiniboia (-30.9 C) and Wynyard (-34.8 C) set new standards.
