Canada Expected to Get Warmer Over the Weekend Amid Extreme Cold Warnings
Canada’s weather is expected to rise again following the extreme cold warnings issued for most of the country. Over the weekend, the temperatures may go up starting in Vancouver and even affecting southern Ontario. A weather expert states as the Colorado low storm system travels to the Atlantic provinces, cool air will follow over this weekend.
Environment Canada has issued extreme cold warnings for most of Canada including northern B.C., all of Alberta and Saskatchewan, the southern half of Manitoba, northern Ontario and Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador, among other parts of the territories. The warnings state chill values from -40 degrees Celsius in Alberta and -55 degrees Celsius in Nunavut can be expected.
However, over the weekend, temperatures are expected to climb back up. Starting from Vancouver, sub-zero temperatures are expected to go up to 2 degrees Celsius by Sunday, according to CTV’s Your Morning chief meteorologist Kelsey McEwen. “For northern Ontario, we see this trend upwards, as well as portions of Quebec but in the south, that’s where things start to change,” she said.
