November has brought record-breaking temperatures to some Saskatchewan communities.

Five historical high temperature records were broken around the province Saturday, according to Environment Canada, including records in Saskatoon and North Battleford dating back more than 60 years.

  • Saskatoon reached 19 C, breaking the 1949 record of 18.9 C.
  • North Battleford reached 19 C, breaking its 1949 record of 18.9 C.
  • Leader reached 22.4 C, breaking the 1949 record of 21 C.
  • Key Lake reached 9 C, breaking the 1980 record of 4 C.
  • Collins Bay reached 9 C, breaking the 2010 record of 7 C.

Regina's temperature of 20 C was a few degrees shy of its 1975 record of 23.3 C.

Environment Canada says Moose Jaw could break its temperature record Sunday. The forecast high of 18 C would beat its 1997 record of 16 C.
