Manitoba shatters cold records, sets 20 new lows
« Reply #2 on: February 16, 2021, 05:37:59 PM »
Manitoba has broken records for the lowest temperature this snap past Saturday. The extreme temperature in the region setting 20 lows.

Although temperatures around this time of the year have often averaged - 20 C, Winnipeg dropped down to -38.8 C, which saw it break an 1879 record by 1 C, according to Brian Luzny, an environment Canada Met.

In the meantime, Shoal Lake broke its 1970 record by close to 6 C, while Norway House registered its recent low of - 44 C, which is lower than its last record by 5 C. Essentially, it is the coldest area in the Province. Luzny noted that they are currently breaking records each day.



He added that a few long-standing records have been shattered by quite a margin.

According to Luzny, Manitoba is seeing a cold snap, which has been the case around January and February. However, this time it seems the Province hit its peak this past Saturday but is possibly going to wind down in the days ahead.

Luzny noted that the Province will soon be making its way back to the temperatures they are used to this week. Most parts of Manitoba, especially Winnipeg, are currently under bone-chilling cold.

Record-breaking WINTER weather in Ontario
« Reply #4 on: April 25, 2021, 09:45:26 AM »
Welcome to Earth Day. Could shatter both temperature and snowfall records.

“Winter weather making for record-breaking day in London, Ont,” reads the headline.

“A blast of winter weather in London, Ont., could shatter temperature records for the day and is already believed to have set a new snowfall record,” writes Jacquelyn LeBel.

“Environment Canada is forecasting a high of just 1 C on Wednesday, almost guaranteeing a new record low for the maximum temperature for April 21.

“The previous record for the lowest maximum temperature for the day in London is 5 C in 1945, recorded at the airport.

“Before 1941, data was recorded in nearby Lambeth, where the record low max for the day is 3.8 C recorded in 1936.

“It looks like we’re going to smash them both today because we’re barely at one degree,” says Global News Radio 980 CFPL weather specialist John Wilson.


 
The overnight low, meanwhile, is expected to fall to -5 C, approaching the current record low for April 21 of -5.9 C set in 1981 at the airport.

Meanwhile, Environment Canada issued a winter weather travel advisory for much of southwestern Ontario, including London and Middlesex County, ahead of the low pressure system that could bring up to 5 cm of snowfall.

The national weather agency said Londoners could face snow, slippery road conditions and reduced visibility due to falling snow starting Tuesday night and lasting into Wednesday morning.

Meteorologists say due to the “uncertain track of the weather system and the warm ground temperatures,” actual snowfall amounts could change.

John Parsons, the city’s division manager of roadside operations, told Global News that sander and salter trucks wee available and ready to deploy if need be, with a focus on main roads and bus routes.
