August 9 was a record-setting day in Fort Saskatchewan.
The temperature that day climbed to 34.5 C, breaking the last daily record of 34.4 C set in 1932.
No heat records were broken in July.
Dan Kulak, meteorologist at Environment Canada, doesn't expect we'll see those high temperatures again in September.
"I think we can say that probably the extended heat of summer is behind us."
Daily highs for the next few weeks should hover in the teens. According to Kulak, temperatures could climb to the high twenties again towards the end of the month. It's still too far in advance to tell for sure, Kulak said, adding that fall this year looks to be mostly mild and dry.
