We have a new record high temperature in Niagara
We've set a new record today with the temperature soaring into the upper teens.
Environment Canada's Geoff Coulson says we broke the old record of 11.4 degrees set back in 2004.
Coulson says the normal temperature for this time of year should be -1.
He says the warm weather is due to a very large storm system moving through the upper Great Lakes that's bringing ice pellets and freezing rain to eastern Ontario.
Coulson adding that system will bring gusty winds to Niagara with winds up to 90 kmh today in the southern tier and up to 80 kmh in other parts of the region.
A cold front will move through tonight that will bring falling temperatures.
Tomorrow's wake up temperature is expected to be around -1 or -2, with a high of -7 Friday.
Coulson notes one of the big problems with these freeze thaw cycles is the damage it does to concrete creating pot hole lined streets.
