Wednesday night was the hottest day of the year in Okotoks and High River, but it wasn’t record-breaking. 

That’s according to Environment and Climate Change Canada, which reported the high temperature at 32.7 degrees in Okotoks. That was just shy of the record for July 10, which was 33.5 set in 2001. 

Meanwhile, temperatures in High River peaked at 32.9, which was also shy of the record for July 10th. 

However, the blistering hot day did break records for some communities in southern Alberta, particularly in the Foothills area.

The Town of Claresholm hit 35.5 degrees on Wednesday, breaking the record of 35 in 1973. 

Milk River broke its record of 34 degrees from 2021 when it hit 34.9.
