Red Deer was very close to setting a new record low for January 1.

It was -35.1 yesterday at the Red Deer Regional Airport.

The record low is -35.6 set back in 1950.

The Prairies are slowly but steadily emerging from a blast of deep winter cold.

After a week or more of bitterly cold temperatures, many areas are now climbing into the single-digit range.

Saskatchewan and Manitoba steadily warm up as the week progresses as well.
