Winnipeg sees second-coldest winter in 75 years
According to Environment Canada, Winnipeg hasn’t seen a winter this frigid in decades.
“This is the second-coldest winter in Winnipeg in 75 years,” said David Phillips from Environment Canada.
Only the year 1939 was colder.
Since November, the city has seen 26 days of temperatures reaching below -30 without wind chill. In a normal year, Winnipeg would only see about 12 days that cold.
The last time we had a winter this cold was in 1979.
Winnipeg has also seen 50 per cent more snow than normal this winter.
While many are hoping for a warm up soon, Environment Canada said the March forecast for Manitoba looks to be colder than normal.
