September was a cold month in the heartland.
According to Environment Canada's data, September of 2018 had the fifth coldest average temperature on record.
The mean temperature was 6.9 C with the normal being 11.4 C. The coldest recorded September was in 5.4 C in 1926, followed by 6.1 C in 1937, 6.3 C in 1965 and 6.8 C in 1934.
When it came to September's average high, 2018 was tied for the second coldest at 11.1 C.
"We saw a really cool end of summer throughout much of the Northwest Territories, they were significantly cooler than we would expect and that cold air was really allowed to slump south," said meteorologist Brian Proctor.
Only 1926 was colder, with an average high of 10.3 C.
