It's been a scorcher of a season in Manitoba this Fall, with record-breaking temperatures reported frequently over the last few weeks.
Dozens of new daytime highs were set on Thanksgiving Monday across the Prairies. The community of Delta Marsh climbed all the way to 27°C. Still, while the warm weather has been enjoyable for some, it has contributed to an unusual outbreak of mosquitos in the southern regions of Manitoba.
Experts say conditions have been ideal for breeding and survival, thanks to the mild temperatures and standing water. The critters are likely to stick around until there is a good killing frost.
According to Michelle Cassar, a meteorologist at The Weather Network, a significant cool down is not expected this week.
“We're not calling for record-breaking temperatures today, but conditions are still on the mild side,” she says. “We're also not expecting frost in Manitoba, but there is a slight chance we could see some in Alberta or Saskatchewan.”
