The warmest temperatures in the country could be found in Newfoundland on Wednesday.

For the first time since December 7, St. John's soared into the double digits. Throughout the morning, Long Pond was the hot spot of Canada at 15°C.

“We have strong winds coming out of the southwest, and that helped warm things up,” says Dayna Vettese, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. “However, things will be cooling down throughout the afternoon.”

On Tuesday, warm air invaded parts of the Maritimes. Greenwood, Nova Scotia climbed to 17°C.

Another big story across Atlantic Canada this week has been the gusty winds. A peak gust of 72 km/h was recorded in St. John's on Tuesday. The winds also clocked in at 89 km/h in Beaver Island, NS and 66 km/h in Moncton, NB.
