Environment Canada confirms temperature records broken in N.S.

The heat Halifax has been experiencing over the past couple of days is now record-breaking.

The temperature at Halifax Stanfield International Airport reached 34.3 degrees on Thursday, according to Environment Canada.

That sets a new record for June 20th, beating out the previous daily high of 32.2 degrees set in 2001. The record has been confirmed by Environment Canada.

A heat warning has now ended but was in effect for Thursday when humidex values made it feel close to 40 degrees in many parts of the province.

The Halifax area is expected to see some relief today and over the weekend, but western Nova Scotia is forecast to continue to see temperatures in the range of 30 degrees for Friday.
