Less than two weeks after setting new records for cold in mid-October, southern Alberta is seeing record warm conditions in early November.

Several communities across the region were on the very warm end of temperatures on Monday, setting new record highs for November 2nd.

Among the communities which broke records include Milk River, Brooks, Bow Island, Claresholm, and Onefour.

Brooks was the hotspot in the south with the mercury topping out at 24.6°C.  That beat a record which has stood since 1981 by nearly a full degree.
