What you see is what you get when it comes to the weather.
Environment Canada says this cold snap Regina and Saskatchewan has been in this month shows no sign of leaving anytime soon with cold arctic air expected to stay with us until next weekend at the earliest.
Environment Canada’s John Paul Cragg says the weather is coming as a shock to many since we haven’t had this type of cold since December of 2013 and we are coming off one of the warmest Novembers in record.
When asked if we can expect conditions like this for the winter, Cragg says he can’t answer the question as weather models in both Canada and the U-S are painting different pictures, but it is safe to say December will be much colder than what we have been used to.
In the meantime, expect to see highs struggling to reach minus 20 with the windchill at times getting into the minus 40 range resulting in extreme cold warnings being issued from time to time over the next few days. An extreme cold warning is currently out for most of Saskatchewan
