Monday, Nov. 2 was a record-setting day for heat across many areas in Alberta.

In fact, Drumheller and Bassano broke the record for the hottest November day on record with a high of 25.9 degrees.

That broke the old record of 25.0 that was hit a couple of times (Foremost on Nov 7, 1999 and Gleichen on Nov 3, 1949)

The City of Edmonton did not get close to a record.  Monday's high of 14.7 was well off the record high of 21.7 set in 1949.

But, EIA did set a new record high, as did Stony Plain and Elk Island.  (read on for a full list of the all the records)

Edmonton's daytime high on Sunday was the 4th-warmest November temperature in the city over the past 10 years.

Monday's high was one-tenth of a degree short of tying for 5th-warmest on that list.
