Grande Prairie was one of the hottest places in Alberta Monday. It reached a high of 18.9 degrees in the 5 p.m. hour, tying with Rycroft and Keg River as the province’s hot spot. That’s no where near the local record, which is 31.1 degrees in 1944.
GP also dipped below zero Monday morning for the first time this fall. It was as low as minus one between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m., the coldest it’s been since the May long weekend.
Environment Canada is calling for daily highs in the low 20s for the rest of the week.
