Hot across the Northwest Territories

Posted by on Wednesday, June 22, 2016

It has been hot across the Northwest Territories. Several high temperatures records were set. In fact, Hay River Nunavut was the warmest place in Canada on Tuesday.

A ridge of high pressure in the lower Mackenzie Valley allowed temperatures in the area to soar and for a few locations to break high temperatures records.
