The highest recorded temperature for March 1 was set back in 1983 at 10.8 degrees, although forecasts for this year suggest we could see a high of 14 degrees.

Senior Meteorologist Geoff Coulson says we shouldn't get use to the mild weather or take off the winter tires just yet as temperatures are expected to dip will be well below normal for at least the next few days.

As for the rest of the month, he says it will be average overall with stretches of colder and milder days.
