Baby, It's Cold Outside!

This from the online weather site we use. For you non-Metric folks, the two scales converge at -40.


Wind chill values of minus 40 or less developing tonight. This is a warning that extreme wind chill conditions are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..Listen for updated statements.


Cold Arctic air has moved into Alberta and will cause overnight temperatures to drop below minus 30 tonight. Winds of 15 km/h are forecast to persist into Tuesday morning producing wind chill values below minus 40. Wind chills will warm slightly throughout Tuesday as temperatures rise above minus 30, however, wind chills below minus 40 will return Tuesday evening. At these extreme wind chill values frostbite on exposed skin may occur in less than 10 minutes.

Since this is supposed to last all week, this would be a good week to be much further south than here.


  1. ...and I'm freezing at 31F. Stay warm!

  2. J&A, the thermometer said -35C/-31F this morning. I had errands to run and I was very grateful that there was only the slightest hint of a breeze. Tonight's windchill is forecast to be -47C/-53F. I wanna be in Mexico!!

  3. EWWWWW YUCK, that is awful. Get out of there and head south lol.
    Take care and stay warm.

  4. Brenda, don't you wish you were still up here? LOL We're coming back to Mexico in March. Doesn't really help me much this

  5. UMMMM let me think, do I miss that???
    NOPE NOT AT ALL lol.
    Stay warm.

  6. Are you surrrrre? lol Normally I wear bare feet inside year-round. Tonight I have socks AND slippers.

  7. Yes, I am SURE. It is +18 C. here right now (9:15 PM) and I have sweat pants, sweat shirt, socks and heavy slippers on lol.
    I would be an icicle in that weather now. I feel cold up there in the summertime now to be honest.
    Hope that cold weather doesn't hang around toooooo long.

  8. You'll be good and ready for your trip south in March.

  9. Marc, we're always ready to be back while we're still there. I know one shouldn't wish their life away, but we just can't wait for retirement.
