A Horrendous Cold Blast With -50 Temps Is Coming For The Prairie Provinces In December

The 'blast of Arctic frigidity' is predicted for right before Christmas.

It's looking like it will be pretty darn frosty in the Prairies this winter. The Farmer's Almanac shared their winter weather forecast with Narcity and we got a peek at what's in store for December 2021.

From December 1 to December 19, the area will see its usual mix of wind, rain, and snow. Next up, heading into the countdown to Christmas, things will start to take a turn.

Between December 20 to December 23, the Prairies will experience "a blast of Arctic frigidity" with temperatures expected to hit as low as -50 C.

According to the predictions, it should warm up for Christmas and Boxing Day with fair skies and "not so frigid" conditions.

The region experienced a polar vortex that had similarly freezing temperatures last winter, so it's nothing people in the Prairies haven't seen before.

It's not officially winter yet but you might want to start thinking about winter tires for your car if you haven't already.

According to The Weather Network, the tires work best when the temperature is below 7 degrees, so a good measure of when you should have them on is when the average daily high trends below that temperature.
