Potential hottest March day on record?

After shattering temperature records five days in a row, we could break a big one, Thursday.

If we top 25.6 C, we’d break the record for the all time warmest day ever in March, recorded at Pearson International Airport.

The temperature of 25.6 C was set on March 28, 1945. The record high for March 22 was 24.4 C, set in 1938. We topped that record when we hit 25C at Pearson Thursday afternoon.

Thursday’s forecast calls for morning fog, then sun-cloud mix with a guaranteed high of 25 C (humidex near 30). There’s a slight chance of showers or isolated thundershowers for the late afternoon to early evening hours.

However, the summer-like temperatures will vanish, Friday, as we slip into the mid-teens — but that’s still well above the norm for this time of year.
