Extreme Cold Warning for Southern Manitoba

Extreme Cold Warning for Southern Manitoba, Vladimir Volenyuk

Everyone loves snow days and beautiful weather the winter brings. But sometimes too much snow can bring some problems like difficult driving conditions and power outages. The winter forecast for Canada shows different temperatures and not as much snow, as it was last year. It is expected that the eastern part of the country throughout the winter will have a lot of rain in the form of rain and snow, predicts Accuweather.

This week will deliver the coldest temperatures and highest wind chill values of the winter. Bitterly or brutally cold air is descending over the eastern prairies of Manitoba.

As shown in the photo, it was -33 C yesterday, January 29th, please pay attention Fells Like -43 C. So it is pretty cold in Winnipeg now and it will get even colder in the next couple of days.

The forecast this week includes most nights with temperatures falling below -30 C, wind chill values in the -40s and even -50s, and daytime highs near -30 C. Overnight temperatures are unlikely to break records for extreme cold but Wednesday afternoon could come close to the record for coldest maximum temperature on January 30th. Currently, the coldest maximum temperature record is -30.8.

For Winnipeggers, the cold isn’t going away any time soon. Forecasts are calling for temperatures in the -20 to -30 C ranges for at least a week, and long-range models from Environment and Climate Change Canada indicates temperatures are likely to stay below normal until nearly the end of the month.

Overall a country can expect a steady transition to winter and moderate temperatures in January. Fellow Winnipeggers, please get ready for the cold weather, it is not just about warm clothes for you and your family, but also make sure to change your tires for a winter ones and prepare all necessary equipment for snow cleaning, so you will have time to deal with the snow in front of your house and to get to work safely and on time! Let`s all be responsible and polite drivers, it is easy just to follow the rules and parking signs, city authorities are working to do everything to make Winnipeg great and safe place to work and to live in!
