An area of high pressure allowed skies to clear and temperatures to drop to record lows for many regions in Saskatchewan early Tuesday morning, according to Environment Canada.

Twenty locations set new daily minimum temperature records, with Saskatoon seeing its coldest Sept. 8 in 103 years, while Yorkton tied an existing record.

Saskatoon is expected to see temperatures return to the mid-20s by Thursday and Friday.
