Most would agree that the Energy City has felt pretty toasty in the past week. In fact, on Friday it was the hottest place in the province.
"It was the warmest reported temperature, at 30.6 degrees, which is very warm for this time of year. You beat out some of the other places close to the U.S. border and to your west, they were more like 29.9, 29.2, so you eked it out by a fraction of a degree," shared Brad Vrolijk, a meteorologist with Environment Canada.
"That's pretty much just a warm air mass in place that's been around for much of the past week now. That will last for Saturday before a cold front comes through and brings in a bit cooler conditions, back to more seasonal temperatures."
Average for this time of year is 21 degrees, so Friday was about 10 degrees above normal.
