Christmas 2017 will be cold!
Those travelling whether it be a short distance or a long one will be facing some frigid temperatures.
Brian Proctor with Environment Canada says an arctic air mass will be descending on Saskatchewan and the entire prairies meaning a cold December 25th with a daytime high in the minus 25 range for much of the province.
Proctor says this won’t be a one or two day cold snap either.
“At this point in time, it looks like we will slowly recover from this as we start approaching New Year’s,” Proctor said. “However, it wouldn’t surprise me if we temperatures like this linger into the start of 2018.”
The average high for Christmas Day in Regina is minus 9.5 degrees.
