Here in Moose Jaw, an unofficial record was set as there are conflicting temperatures. NAV Canada’s reading at CFB Moose Jaw read 36.8 degrees at 3 p.m. on Thursday, which would have broken the record of 36.7 set in 1971. However, Environment Canada’s climate site recorded a temperature of 35.6, so the record was not officially broken.
