February temperatures slightly colder than usual

Even with February’s false spring, the month panned out to be a bit colder than usual.

“A little bit cooler than normal, about .4 of a degree colder than the average temperature,” says Dan Fulton, Meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada.

“The very beginning of the month was quite a bit colder than normal and then we went through a bit of an above-normal phase right until the 20th. Now, we’re in a colder-than-normal phase.”

The tail end of February went into a deep freeze with temperatures steadily sitting between -20 and -30 degrees.

As we head into the first week of March, the temperatures are expected to warm up.

Thursday will sit at a high of -2 and Friday will sit at zero.

Residents can expect some melting snow during the next few days so roadways will likely be wet and possibly be subjected to freezing overnight.

According to Environment and Climate Change Canada’s website, the temperatures will dip back to around -10 after the weekend.
