From way colder, to hot, hot, hot.

Barely out of a bitterly cold and long winter, Manitoba got hot fast.

Environment Canada's forecast for Manitoba Saturday called for 30 C in Winnipeg, 33 for Altona, 32 for Steinbach, and even 30 for Thompson. 

It could be one for the record books - the record for Winnipeg was set back in 1876 at 31.7 C.

Winnipeg did hit 32.5 by mid-afternoon, but it won't be official until Environment Canada releases the figures Sunday.

Unfortunately, the forecast also called for a risk of thunderstorms, and that came true, along with rain later in the day.

Environment Canada said the risk of a thunderstorm continues overnight, along with strong southwest winds.

Sunday, there's still a chance of more thunderstorms, with a high of just 22 C.
