The Canadian Climate Survey is tracking historical and average temperatures in cities and towns across the country, as part of an effort to put something of a local face on global climate change.
Temperature Extremes: Over the period since 1890, 6 of Prince Albert’s hottest years on record have been since 1990. In contrast, none of its 10 coldest years have occurred since 1990. The coldest year since 1990 was 1996, at -0.6 ˚C, which is the 30th-coldest year on record.
Long-Term Consequences: For the moment Prince Albert appears to temporarily reached some sort of temperature plateau. There are both fewer hot and fewer cool years than there were during the 1980s.
