Yesterday Was a Record Breaking Temperature Day in Brampton
Hooray for…global warming?
While everyone no doubt enjoyed the spectacularly balmy weather in Brampton and the GTA on Thursday, Feb. 23, the high temperatures may have given other people pause.
But while the day was no doubt unusual, it would be hard to argue that it wasn't welcome. After all, nothing is more exhilarating than wandering the streets of downtown Brampton in a stylish fall sweater rather than a heavy winter jacket.
According to a recent Global News article, Toronto and its surrounding cities broke the February record for the warmest temperature on record.
An incredible high of 16.5 C was noted at Pearson International Airport (just outside of Brampton) at noon. It surpassed the previous record of 16 C, which was set last year on Feb. 3.
Global notes that the temperature actually exceeded the Environment Canada prediction of 16 C. Up until yesterday, the hottest Feb. 23 on record occurred in 1984 when the temperature hit 14.9 C.
As for the rest of the month, temperatures are staying relatively mild.
According to The Weather Network, Brampton will enjoy a high of 7 C tomorrow (with rain) and 10 C on Saturday (also with). Temperatures will drop back into the low single digits once the work week kicks off.
Here's hoping everyone made the best of the warm day!
