Record breaking cold for Valentine's Day
Environment Canada says the region saw a record breaking cold for Valentine's Day.
The weather office says Barrie reached -33.3 C on Sunday morning, breaking the 1879 record of -31.1 C. A little further north in Shanty bay, the 1979 record of -27 C was broken, as the mercury dropped to -32 C.
In Muskoka, a new record of -39.9 C broke the old 1979 record of -35.7 C. Just up the road in Haliburton, the 1934 record of -40 C was just beaten after registering -40.5 C.
No records were set on Saturday and Environment Canada says temperatures will return to seasonal norms on Monday.
