Colder weather rolls eastward

Pardon us for stating what’ll be obvious by the time you read this, but colder temperatures are pushing eastward across the Prairies. Lows Monday dropped to -20 to -23 C in much of western Alberta and the Peace region and -14 C around Saskatoon and Moose Jaw, while dipping to just -8 C around Brandon and Dauphin and -2 C around Winnipeg.

Highs Monday climbed to +1 C at WeatherFarm stations around Winnipeg, -6 C around Saskatoon, Prince Albert and Moose Jaw and -8 C around Regina, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat and Swift Current, but reached just -14 C around Edmonton and Red Deer and -18 to -22 C in much of the Peace region.
