Cooler temperatures push eastward

Summer-like daytime temperatures and below-freezing lows both pushed east on the Prairies Tuesday, as lows dropped to -2 C around Russell, Roblin and Melita in western Manitoba and -1 C around Kamsack and Hudson Bay in eastern Saskatchewan, but hit just +8 C around Winnipeg and +9 C around Lethbridge.

Highs at WeatherFarm stations on Tuesday climbed to 28 C around Moose Jaw and Swift Current, Sask. and Bow Island in southeastern Alberta but hit just 10 to 12 C around Winnipeg, Grande Prairie and Fort St. John.
