Alberta Is In For The Coldest Temps In 17 Years When The 'Dangerous' Polar Vortex Hits
While winter has been pretty manageable so far, Alberta's weather this weekend is about to break all the wrong records.
On Sunday, February 7, parts of the province are going to be hit with the coldest temperatures in 17 years.
The Weather Network predicts that “bonafide Arctic air straight from Siberia” will begin to swoop into the Canadian Prairies on Friday and "the coldest temperatures on the continent" will rush in over the weekend.
On Sunday the coldest daytime highs will set in as parts of Alberta will struggle to get above -30 C.
On the other end of the spectrum, lows may fall as deep as -41 C.
Edmonton is going to be in especially rough shape. In fact, the city hasn't seen this type of cold in nearly two decades.
This type of weather is really dangerous, so be sure to keep warm and avoid travel if possible.
