It looks like the final month of winter has to have one last laugh – even though it’s also the first month of spring.
March will come to a chilly end this weekend, with temperatures plunging down to -14°C on Friday night.
To only add insult to injury, the deep freeze will come after a night and a day of snowfall, which is expected from Thursday to Friday.
It isn’t quite the record low for March 30 (that was set in 1899 at -20.6°C) but it is far too close for comfort… especially seeing as 2004 saw the day’s highest temperature on record, at a balmy 25.4°C.
We’ll hopefully be seeing temperatures reach those scorching heights in the near future, but until then we recommend your hardiest scarves and those pinky-saving mittens.
