Nov 22 2018, 1:53 pm

If we’re going to freeze, let’s at least do it in historic proportions.

According to Environment Canada, today’s frigid temperature is the coldest recorded on any November 22 in Toronto’s history.

The -13.1°C Toronto reached earlier this morning beats its previous coldest November 22 back in 1989 when temperatures dipped to -12.4°C.

The average low in Toronto, based on data collected since 1941, for November 22 is -1.8°C, so we’re well below average today.

As Novembrrrrrrrrrrrrr continues, temperatures are expected to heat up for the weekend.

Friday is slated to be a pleasant 3°C, according to Environment Canada, and temperatures will continue to rise over the weekend, with 5°C expected on Saturday and 6°C on Sunday.

So while you might be freezing today, just remember that ‘warmer’ temperatures are on the way.

Stay warm, Toronto. As of 9 am it is -10°C at Pearson Airport and feels like -19°C with the wind chill.
