With a low of -38.0°C yesterday morning at Winnipeg airport, it was the coldest temperature recorded since February 2007 when we reached -41.7°C on February 5.
In addition, the high yesterday was a measly -30.2°C, the coldest daytime high since January 30, 2004 when we only reached -30.8°C. Yesterday's high also broke a record low maximum for the day, breaking the old record of over 100 years of -30.0°C in 1912.
Other lows across southern Manitoba yesterday morning included:
Beausejour -37.3°C (Mb ag station)
Minnedosa -36.7°C (Mb ag station)
A minimum wind chill value of -50.7 was also recorded at Winnipeg airport yesterday morning.
We will barely exceed -30°C today as the cold snap holds for another few days. The warmup begins Wednesday night with a strong southerly flow and rising temperatures. We will likely see some days in the minus single digits later in the week. Wont that feel nice!
