Record heat in Edmonton for a third straight day

Edmonton set another record high Wednesday afternoon: Temperatures cruised past the previous July 10 record high of 33.0 C set in 2001.

As of 4 p.m., the city had hit 35.4 C. That’s the seventh-hottest temperature ever recorded in Alberta’s capital city based on data dating back to 1880.

This is Edmonton’s third consecutive day of record heat. Monday (July 8) set a new record at 32.6 C, while Tuesday (July 9) tied the previous record of 34.1 set in 2015.

Temperatures will likely climb a bit further, so we’ll update this story throughout the afternoon and into the evening.
