Mild weather records could be falling over like melting snowmen all around Saskatchewan today.

Regina is expected to hit 12 C later in the day, shattering the old record for Feb. 26 of 8.9 C set in 1932.

It's a little cooler in Saskatoon, where the expected high of 5 will fall short of the old record of 7.4 for the day set in 1988.

Elsewhere around the province, several towns and cities are expecting record-setting, double-digit temperatures, including Moose Jaw (14) and Swift Current (14).

A mild weekend is in the forecast, but by Monday the mercury is expected to zoom downward, with highs in the minus teens.
