Not Just Warm...Record Breaking.

March 8, 2010 — It feels like spring has sprung across the Prairies, and there's record breaking temperatures to prove it.

It was a weekend people dream of. Warm, spring-like temperatures at the beginning of March.

A warm pacific air mass remained over northern Saskatchewan Sunday and record breaking highs were the result.

Areas from Saskatoon right through to Winnipeg can expect reduced visibility again today, but the foggy conditions should improve by the afternoon.
