Many communities around Alberta broke temperature records on Tuesday and Airdrie was one of them.

According to Justin Shelley, a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), it was the hottest day in Calgary and Airdrie since 1993.

"There was a daily record broken on Tuesday, which was 14.5 degrees, which broke the old record of 14.4, set back in 1993."

While Airdrie does not have its own weather station with ECCC, when talking about Airdrie's weather, ECCC takes the weather results from the Calgary Airport as they are so close together.

"It's looking less likely that we're going to see any further records broken this week. For example, the record for the Calgary area today is 13.9 degrees."

The record for February 1 is 14.4 and Airdrie is only forecasted to see a high of five degrees.

According to Shelley, the warmest place in Alberta on Tuesday was Onefour near Cypress Hills, which reached 16.4 degrees.

Heading into the weekend and next week, it looks like the cooler temperatures will be returning to Airdrie.

"That nice warm-up ridge that has been centred over the prairies is slowly going to shift farther and farther east. And that's going to allow for some cooler and more unsettled conditions starting on the weekend."

With a daytime high of three degrees on Saturday, Airdrie is forecasted to see some snow Saturday night. Sunday's daytime high is -7 degrees.

The daytime high for this time of year in Airdrie is usually around -2 degrees.
