Febrrrrrruary in the Prairies

February 23, 2010 — From hot to cold. Regina is one city that has seen it all. There is almost 100 degrees separating the warmest and coldest temperatures in the area. Find out more about these records in the video to the left.

Throw on a few extra layers and bundle up!

It is COLD across the Prairie provinces.

Anyone waking up in Winnipeg had to cope with a bone-chilling temperature of -22 degrees. With the wind chill, it felt about ten degrees colder than that!

Similar temperatures were felt this afternoon, but there is some relief in the long range forecast. Michelle Cassar is a Meteorologist at The Weather Network. She says things will start warming up as early as tomorrow.

'We'll be a little warmer for Wednesday, and then we'll see some mild conditions thanks to Pacific air making its' way over the Rockies,' she says. 'That will help moderate the temperatures.'

Meanwhile, it's feeling more like Spring in Alberta. Edmonton is expected to reach a high of 5 degrees on Thursday.

Not to worry though. The rest of the Prairie provinces will be feeling milder temperautres like this in no time. After all, the official start of Spring is now less than a month away.
