It’s been a wintry start to the new decade across the country, and it’s beginning to look like the season's crazy conditions are only going to get worse. In fact, according to Environment Canada’s weather warnings on Thursday, there’s only one place in the whole country that’s pleasant-ish to be in right now, and that’s New Brunswick!\nAcross the rest of the country though, things aren't looking so hot. Every other Canadian province and territory has some kind of weather warning, statement or advisory in place from the government agency.\nWith everything from storm surges and blizzards, to hurricane-force winds and extreme cold in the forecast, the country is currently facing the worst possible weather conditions.\nIn Western Canada, Yukon and the Northwest Territories deal with the bone-chilling Arctic temps, meanwhile, Newfoundland is bracing for a blizzard with up to 70 cm of snow.\nOver in Nova Scotia, serious wind is posing a threat to locals, while Ontario’s snow squall is expected to dangerously reduce visibility in the province.\nAs winter wages war on the majority of our home and native land, it's New Brunswick who has the least-concerning weather right now.\nThat said, with temperatures in the province sitting around -8 C and snowfall still expected in the region, it's hardly ideal conditions!\nWherever you are in the Great White North right now, here's a look at what's going on across the rest of the country in the coming hours and days.\nAlberta\nView this post on Instagram There’s a reason why Edmonton is called the ‘Winter City’. With tons of winter festivals, cross-country ski trails throughout the river valley, and winter patios galore, Edmonton makes it easy to go play outside no matter what the thermometer is reading.

Stay warm Alberta.\nBritish Columbia\nView this post on Instagram Here’s some exciting news to warm your hearts on this cold winter’s day! 💙 The Sea to Sky Gondola will be reopening ahead of schedule on February 14th after an unexpected closure back in August due to a criminal act of vandalism. The reopening comes just in time for Family Day Long Weekend with the gondola welcoming guests back with 50% off lift tickets all weekend long in celebration of the love and support they received from their community during the closure. We're thrilled for our friends at the @seatoskygondola and we hope you are too!

The highest risk will be on Thursday night and Friday.\nStay away from the shoreline, islanders!\nQuebec\nView this post on Instagram 2020 est arrivée!
