The heat wave continues in southern Alberta, with multiple weather records being broken throughout the week. 

Banff set a temperature record on Monday when the mercury climbed to 31.1 C. That topped the 1994 record of 30.5 C.

Records were also set in Cardston (35.6 C), Milk River (35.4 C), Pincher Creek (35.3 C), and Taber (36.6 C). 

Cochrane got to 31 C on Monday, which did not break the record set in 1971 when it was 32.2 C. 

But, there is a chance we could surpass a record on Thursday. The forecast calls for sunny skies and 33 C. The warmest we've been on Aug. 17 in Cochrane was back in 2001 when we hit 32 C. 

Cochrane remains under a heat warning.
