2008: Saskatoon cold streak

Staff writers
December 23, 2012 — Saskatoon knows cold -- but even for Saskatoon, December 2008 and January 2009 were just a little hard to take.

Beginning December 13, an arctic air mass kept the temperature below -25 C, at least once everyday, for 24 days.

It was the most consecutive days below -25 C in the city's history.

Finally, on Jan 6, the streak ended -- but the cold continued.

The temperature never climbed above zero until the 16th -- 46 days, and not a minute above zero.
