Hot, cold records set in Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan was blowing hot and cold yesterday, with records set in the north and south.

Warmer than usual in north, cooler in south

Saskatchewan was blowing hot and cold yesterday, with records set in the north and south.

In Collins Bay, in the northeast corner of the province, it hit 27.8 C, making it the warmest July 15 ever for that community.

That broke the old record set in 2005. The same record high, 27.8, was hit in the northern community of Southend.

Meanwhile, the opposite was happening in Saskatchewan's extreme south.

In Coronach, close to the U.S. border, the mercury dipped to 3.9, the chilliest July 15 on record.  That broke the old record set in 2009.
