It is another record-setting day in Weyburn, as the mercury dipped to -41.2° at 8:00 a.m.

According to records from Environment Canada, this is just the 14th time the temperature in Weyburn has dipped below -40° without the wind chill factored in. It is also the first time the temperature has been below -40° for two consecutive days, with the temperature yesterday dipping to -40.3°.

Much of Saskatchewan is experiencing the cold weather, with a number of cold weather records being set. There were 22 records set according to Environment Canada yesterday, and another 15 were set this morning.

The coldest spot in the country was Coronach for much of the night, and morning, with the temperature dipping down to -46°. The warmest spot in the province was Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park, where it was a balmy -22°.

The cold in Saskatchewan makes many of the communities amongst the coldest places in the world this morning. The city of Yakutsk, Russia, which is known as the coldest city in the world, saw a temperature of -40° over the past 24 hours. Meanwhile, Alert, Nunavut, the northernmost permanent settlement in the world, had a low of -32° at one point overnight.

The forecast does hold the promise of a warm-up in the coming days, although temperatures will still be well below the normal for this time of year. Environment Canada is calling for the mercury to rise to -17° by Monday.
