BREAKING | Niagara's warm weather smashes a heat record

It's so warm in Niagara today it will go down in the history books.

It reached 13.7 degrees in Welland at 2 o'clock this afternoon, beating a previous heat record on February 4th 1991 of 12 degrees.

Environment Canada's Peter Kimbell tells CKTB News we are getting very mild weather today, which is unusual.

He says colder weather will move in tonight following some rain, and temperatures will fall through out the day tomorrow to about zero degrees in the afternoon.

The last time it warmed up like this in February was in 2016 when it hit 13 degrees on February 3rd.
