In Clyde River, hunters could almost taste caribou stew as they headed out on the ice under the shining sun and hunted for seal, caribou, Arctic char and ptarmigan.
And they didn't need to bundle up much, with highs of -9.2C on Monday, breaking the 1950 record of -9.4.
Iqaluit experienced weather closer to what you'd expect in April, with highs on March 11 of 4.3C, breaking the 1950 record of 0C.
Cape Dorset was also basking in the warm weather, hitting zero on March 14, shattering the 1982 record of -8C.
In total, 20 record highs were set across Nunavut between March 11 and 16. But the warm weather was especially appreciated in Clyde River.
"We haven't seen much country food for the last month or so," said Steven Aipeelie at the hamlet office.
Snowy weather meant that until lately, hunters have returned empty handed. But with sunny skies, Aipeelie had high hopes for a good catch. Kupapik, a resident of Sanikiluaq, enjoyed the warm weather on March 15 while carving. While there were no records broken here, the sunny weather gave him the first chance to practise his art this year, he said.
