It'll be no surprise to hear that the current heatwave has brought some new record temperatures to Southern Alberta.

That includes High River, with a new record high of 36 degrees Celsius on August 15.

The previous record of 33.1 degrees was set in 2021.

Claresholm's new record of 35.4 degrees is just one degree higher than its old record from 2021.

Stavely also has a new record of 33.2 degrees, beating the previous record set in 1961 by a single degree.

More records are sure to be broken tomorrow (August 17), with a forecast high of 37 in the Foothills.
