Although Saturday marked the official start to fall, some residents in Manitoba were hoping for a smoother transition. 

Tank tops and flip flops were traded for sweaters and boots as parts of the province hit new record low temperatures Sunday. 

Winnipeg saw the thermometer dip to -7.1 degrees, beating a previous record set back in 1879. 

"Most places are seeing seasonal daytime highs, it's the mornings that have people dressing in layers," says Monica Vaswani, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. "Cold morning temperatures will continue on Tuesday and Wednesday, but conditions will start to warm in the region by Thursday."
