Cold turning to colder

The colder temperatures pushing eastward over the Prairies show no sign yet of warming or levelling off at the western end of the region. Lows Thursday dropped to -30 to -32 C in the Peace region, -29 C around Estevan and Meadow Lake, Sask. and around Virden and Roblin in western Manitoba, and -26 C around Edmonton and Brooks. (We’re still checking out that odd patch on the WeatherFarm maps in far southern Manitoba.)

Highs on Thursday rose to -7 C around Winnipeg and -13 C around Brandon and Dauphin, but hit just -20 C around Calgary, Saskatoon, Red Deer and Prince Albert and -24 to -26 C in much of the Peace region.
