Polar Vortex bringing arctic air blast across Canada in March 2019 warns The Weather Network.
Just when you thought that spring-like weather would be coming soon, winter decided to kill any hopes of a warm start to March by sending another hit with Life-Threatening -65°C Wind Chills in to most of Canada. The Polar Vortex will be hitting Canada with an “arctic blast” this week for the first 10 days of March 2019. Is the end of brutal winter weather close? The forecast, unfortunately, says no.
It’s expected to be significantly colder than usual throughout most of Canada as March begins and we inch towards the start of spring. “Temperatures will be as much as 10 to 15 degrees colder than seasonal, especially across central Canada with temperatures even colder than what we typically see in January”, says The Weather Network.
The Arctic air blast will be hitting both Western and Eastern Canada. It will first be coming to the western regions of Canada, such as Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba reaching temperatures far below normal.
Quebec and Ontario will experience unusal freezing temperatures next week , with Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba reaching temperatures far below normal.
“Initially, the focus of the next blast of arctic air will be across western Canada with temperatures as much as 20 degrees colder than normal for parts of Alberta,” says The Weather Network. Colder than average temperatures are also in store for BC and Saskatchewan.
Next week, the arctic air will spread from Western Canada to the southern and eastern regions of the country. “The coldest temperatures for Ontario and Quebec will arrive for Tuesday and Wednesday with temperatures of around -45 C and -45 C,” warns The Weather Network.
