As cold as it's been in Swift Current and the southwest part of Saskatchewan recently, some areas in the province have had it worse.

Assiniboia, Elbow, Estevan, Melfort, and Weyburn all set cold weather records with temperatures from -37 C to -44 C.

Prince Albert also broke a record when they got down to -44.8 C, beating the previous record that was set back in 1899.
