A freezing February 2016

The year 2016 started off as most years do in Canada- with cold weather warnings. Environment Canada issued extreme cold warnings for the southern half of Manitoba, almost the entire province of Ontario, parts of Quebec, and parts of New Brunswick plus warnings for extreme cold and winter storms in areas of Newfoundland and Labrador.

In total, the agency issued warnings for 140 regions of Canada, CTV News reported on Feb 13, 2016. The good news is that we should see a more progressive pattern this season. That means there will be periodic breaks in the cold, and even the occasional thaw across the south, The Weather Network reported in their winter forecast for this year.
