1C right now. Predicting 8C tomorrow. Any snow cover in Southern Saskatchewan, especially the Southwest is probably gone.

The Prairie cities are about as warm or warmer than cities on the western and northern shores of Gulf of Mexico at the moment. Corpus Christi is currently sitting at -1C, New Orleans at -3C, La Pesca (MX) at 3C and it is a coastal weather station. It looks like a shitty day to be on a cruise ship on the northern parts of the Gulf of Mexico today with temperatures around 7C. You would be warmer on a cruise ship in coastal BC.

-8C with a wind chill of -12C and sunny! It's actually warmer at the moment (-5.8C). Hopefully this is the last below average day for quite a while. I think we more than deserve that god damn pattern switch with the above normal temps on this side of the continent.

The warmspot was Race Rocks Lightstation, BC at 15.5C.

So much for Wednesday's "storm" in Vancouver (at least downtown and the east side). The morning was dry and a bit blustery but the rain didn't start up until early afternoon. It came down pretty good for a couple of hours and then it just stopped. The high at Vancouver Harbour was 11 C, the low was 8 C.



Vancouver, Jan.17 '18, my pics

Ah. That's too bad. It would have been nice for the local ski hills to get a good dump of snow.

Currently -4C and partly cloudy in Moncton. We ended up getting 17 cm of snow last night which was more than expected, but it's the light fluffy kind of snow which everyone likes.

The ground was bare previously, so all we did was re-establish a baseline snow cover with this snowfall.

Mild and drizzly. Frozen sand dunes are starting to melt but goes much slower than snow. Still decent though. Out for a long walk at lunch and extremities never got cold at all.

I am planning a skating party on the weekend so hoping it does not warm up too much.

Apparently just to spite you, the forecast for Ottawa has gone up to 5 degrees, up from 2 when I checked earlier.

Any more effort you expend planning this skating party will inevitably cause a linear relationship to further increases.

As an aside, for the sake of your fellow NCR residents, you may want to think ahead and start planning a skate party for every day next winter...

Above freezing on a January 17th in Winnipeg must be a pretty rare occurrence.

Even if goes way above freezing and your rink's unusable, you can always go and move your skating event to that famous 150th skating rink -- given its pricetag, I'm assuming it includes a climate-controlled dome.

That BC snowstorm really was a nonevent. How could they get it so wrong? Kelowna was bracing for a pretty big dump, and instead this happened.

God that accent just irritates me, which is rich coming from a Newfoundlander, I know, but... how can you stand it? Her first time saying "Downtown Kelowna" - the pitch of every single syllable was incorrect. I would talk like that if I was trying to mimic a robot that reads webpages in YouTube videos.

I miss the sun. Help.

10 degrees in Kamloops today.

Think it stayed than they were expecting.

Also the big snow dump story was misleading from the start,it was always going to be a rain event along the coast and in the valleys. It was the mid and higher altitudes that were supposed to get slammed.

Was funny reading all the comments from people who thought this storm was bringing two meters of snow to Vancouver (granted I will give them that the headline was misleading).
