Arctic air to bring bitterly cold sub
A dreaded polar vortex is heading for Canada less than two weeks after it plunged us into record breaking lows and this time it’s expected to stay much longer.
The spinning pool of freezing, dense Arctic air will hit Ontario, Quebec and Manitoba with much colder than normal temperatures early next week, Environment Canada meteorologist Geoff Coulson said.
It likely won be as cold as early January when wind chills hit 50 C in some regions but Toronto is forecast to hover around 20 C. The average temperature in the city this time of year is 2 C.
In Winnipeg, Environment Canada expects temperatures to hit 35 C.
The bitter cold will likely stick around Ontario and Manitoba until the end of January and then hang over Saskatchewan and Alberta until mid February.
“What’s been different this particular winter is the depth of cold air that we’re dealing with how cold this air actually was and how far south it penetrated,” Coulson said. due to the polar vortex?

“I don’t think anyone has any idea what it’s like to work in 40 degree weather pitching bags into a plane on a skating rink. That was the issue,” said Air Canada executive vice president and chief financial officer Michael Rousseau.
Ontario is also still recovering from a Christmas ice storm that downed trees and hydro lines, cutting power to hundreds of thousands for days and stalling road and air travel. The storm impacted dozens of communities and officials have said the total bill from the affected municipalities could top $250 million, including $106 million for Toronto alone.
So far there no explanation for why Canada has been hit so hard by severe weather this winter.
