Deep freeze continues.. some relief by end of next week?
The deep freeze continues over Southern MB and much of central and Eastern Canada. The big question now is.. when will it end??!! Long range guidance is hinting at some relief by the middle to end of next week over the Prairies with the Arctic vortex (shown above) finally showing some signs of breaking down. Temperatures in Winnipeg, which have averaged some 12 degrees below normal so far this month, may finally get back to a normal high of -9 by next Thursday or Friday with even -5 or so possible by next weekend! Break out the sunscreen! After that, it's anyone's guess as to how things will develop with long range models showing a wide range of solutions ranging from below to above normal temperatures to end off February (basically at this point, a non-forecast.. will have to wait and see)
