If we’re going to freeze, let’s at least do it in historic proportions. According to Environment Canada, today’s temperature is the coldest recorded November 22 in Montreal’s history.
Today’s -16.3°C trumps Montreal’s previous coldest November 22 in 1972, when temperatures dipped to -14.4°C.
Southwest 20km/h wind chills also makes it feel like -26°C in Montreal.
The average low in Montreal, based on data collected since 1941, for November 22 is -3.6°C, so we’re well below average today.
As Novembrrrrrrrrrrrrr continues, temperatures are expected to heat up a touch for the weekend. Friday is slated to be -7°C, according to the Weather Network, and we’ll return to above zero temperatures on Sunday, while expecting freezing rain.
This premature winter we’re ‘enjoying’ won’t stay down for long though, as next Tuesday’s forecast is once again calling for snow.
Stay warm, Montreal.
