Climate change is making a difference and Saskatchewan temperatures are rising faster than ever.
On Friday September 8th, according to preliminary numbers high pressure over the prairies resulted in new record high temperatures.
Kindersley's previous heat record was set in 2011 with a high of 32.2 C for the 8th of September. Last Friday the record was beat by a high of 34.8 C.
Meadow Lake experiences a heat wave of 32.2 C. Previous to that, Meadow Lake had not experiences such high temperatures since 31.5 C in 1981.
With rising temperatures residents can really see and feel a difference in Saskatchewan weather. The hot dry temperatures harvest has also began early for many western Saskatchewan producers. With the dry summer of 2017 field fires have also become more of a risk.
Saskatchewan acknowledges the science-based reality of climate change and hopes to reduce greenhouse gases in future years.
