Several regions across southern Ontario broke records for warm weather on Saturday.
Toronto Pearson Airport broke the previous record for February by hitting 12.5 degrees Celsius, edging a high from 1994 of 12.
Meanwhile, 10 other locations across southern Ontario had similar records dismissed.
Environment Canada says London broke a warm weather record that stood more than 60 years.
The temperature at the London Airport reached 12.2 degrees yesterday. The previous mark was 11.7 degrees set in 1953.
The Windsor airport had its previous record of 14 Celsius, from 1983, dashed with the temperature reaching 16.9.
“We’re in this El Nino pattern where temperatures tend to be a little bit milder than average over the winter months,” reveals Environment Canada`s Rhea Alson.
“It doesn’t mean we won’t get those cold outbreaks, and as we saw, we did. But they tend to not last as long or be as severe as some other winters where we’ve been really cold for the whole season.”
Other regions of note with record temps on Saturday include Sarnia hitting 14.4 Celsius, Waterloo-Wellington at 10.8, Hamilton Airport at 12.4, and Oshawa at 11.9.
