The summer weather isn't over yet.  
 
Yesterday (September 7), the Heartland saw temperatures near 32 Celcius, breaking the previous record temperature of 30.6 C.
 
"An upper ridge has settled over the area, ushering in a bunch of southerly flow bringing in some pretty warm temperatures. Nothing out of the ordinary it just happens to be that this particular weather pattern hit in September," said Robyn Dyck, Meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada.
 
Based on the current weather patterns, the warm weather will continue.
 
"The ridge progresses slowly to the east, so it's not something that will be moving away quickly."
 
The previous record was set in 1909.
