You think your weather is bad?

Posted by   + Show Post

This is what I woke up to:

-30 C (-22 F) all on it's own, but thanks to that super duper wind it is -42 C (-44 F). At almost noon it has warmed up to a balmy -27 C, still -38 C with the wind chill.

Although I very much doubt it, can anyone out there beat this?

Beautiful! I love when the ice fog sets in. Our house backs onto a forest, it is so pretty to look at. At least until the wind blows it all off.

We have temps in the 20s, but the 60mph winds we are having today makes it feel like the temp outside is in the single digits.  It is supposed to be in the teen all this coming week.

Burr baby burrr!!!

Quoting D.O.E.:

Very Very Cold Outside

Cold-Winter-Day 2

Make sure you're completely covered if heading outside. Southern Saskatchewan is feeling the brunt of winter.

Wind chill warnings went out early Sunday morning for a number of areas including, Moose Jaw, Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, North Battleford, and Humboldt.

For now, temperatures have plummeted to about -40 with the windchill. By mid-week, the province should get back to normal temperatures for this time of year.

 

Wind chill warning issued by Environment Canada for
Moose Jaw - Pense - Central Butte - Craik

Extreme wind chills

A cold Arctic airmass pushing into Southern Saskatchewan with winds in the 20 to 30 km/h range will combine to produce extreme wind chills in the minus 40 to minus 43 range over the warning area. Extreme wind chills are expected again in Southeastern Saskatchewan Sunday night and  into Monday morning.

At these extreme wind chill values frostbite on exposed skin may occur in less than 10 minutes.




yeppers, i am right there with ya. getting itchy for spring. we have had one hell of a winter, last year we had barley any snow, and wore hoodies all winter, not even jackets. 

this sucks. this is an old school kind of winter.

Awe but when it blows it off it looks like glitter falling from the sky! I can imagine what it looks like in a forest.

 We had that a couple of weeks ago. It's been a very cold January here, too. Right now it's 7 degrees with -5 with windchill..it's been this cold or colder all month.

I had to get a new battery for my car yesterday, it finally gave out:(
