LETHBRIDGE, AB – Heat records continue to be smashed all across southern Alberta during this historic heatwave.
Several communities across the south set new daytime highs yesterday for June 29th, beating old records which, in some cases, had had been locked in for years.
Lethbridge set a record again, this time at 36.4°C. That beat the previous record of 34.0°C set back in 1984.
Other places with new records on Tuesday include Taber, Bow Island, Pincher Creek, Waterton, Claresholm, Cardston, Milk River, and Calgary.
And the forecast is showing Thursday and Friday will be the hottest days yet.
As hot as it is, this is nothing compared to our neighbours to the west. Lytton, BC once again set a new Canadian record on Tuesday with a mind-blowing 49.6°C!
