For the second day in a row, Kenora has broken a heat record.

At 3 p.m., the mercury had already reached 27.2 degrees. The old record for September 29 was set in 1948 at 25 degrees.

Kenora narrowly beat out a heat record yesterday when the high reached 24.7 degrees, the previous record was 24.4 degrees set in 1948 at the Kenora Airport.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Gerald Cheng says this weekend’s seasonal temperatures are typically around 12 or 13 degrees, but the forecast is calling for highs in the low 20s. He adds the warm weather is expected to stick around well into next week and through next weekend.
