I miss the sun. Help.
It's an accent that younger females use, I guess? I didn't really notice the accent until you mentioned it, but now that I listened to it carefully, I can definitely hear it.

-3C with a wind chill of -10C and a mix of sun and clouds. At least it's above normal.

The warmspot was Abbotsford, BC at 12.0C.

The best thing about the weather in Vancouver on Thursday was the mostly blue sky and absence of rain. The not so great thing was the wind which made it feel a bit chillier than usual. The high at Vancouver Harbour was 10 C, the low was 7 C.

Nope, not rare at all, just not common. It's gets above zero in every winter month, even if it's just for a little while. It can also rain every winter month here too.

Yeah, I wouldn't call 2.5 times on average every January as rare.

I did notice though that Winnipeg's highest temp ever for January is 7.8. i am guessing that would make it the only major city in Canada never to reach 10 degrees in January?

Also, on a fun note, we may complain about how cold and dark different areas of Canada are in the winter, but things can always be worse!

Areas of Russia were down to -67 the other day (and these are populated areas)

And Moscow recorded a record minimum of only 6 minutes of sunshine the entire month of December.

Seoul has had a (mostly) great week of weather. Daytime temperatures were around 7c-8c. Next week isn't going to be so kind. Lows of -15c. Oof!

A couple of pictures from Friday.

Nice pics of Seoul! Yeah, that cold air will make its way down here next week too, but in a more South Coast style, lows around -3 and highs around 2.

Nice to be able to notice the days getting longer. Helps it's been sunnier than normal lately.

-2C with a wind chill of -7C and overcast. It has warmed up slightly this evening. Saint-Anicet is even showing 3C at the moment.
EC is giving a high of -10C for Monday while NWS is showing 2C for Burlington, VT the same day. Needless to say, I am going with NWS as always. It would most likely be close to zero that day.

The warmspot was Bonilla Island, BC at 8.6C.

It sure is! I can already feel the sun getting stronger too, felt so warm on my face the other day!

A milder week here for us with a fair amount of sunshine

Agreed. Yesterday was the first day I noted the days to be getting perceptively longer. This does great things for the psyche.

A light snowfall of 2 cm earlier today in Moncton. It is now 0C and might go up to +3C later today. The temperatures around here seem to be returning to normal after a lot of extreme cold over the last several weeks......

They keep calling for snow but it's not showing up it's too mild. In fact it's not even raining either.

Saturday around Vancouver was just like Friday, blustery and wet for most of the day. I only went outside to go to a movie. The high at Vancouver Harbour was 8 C, the low was 5 C.
