Canada is one of the coldest places on earth right now
No place knows winter like Canada knows winter. Apparently, not even the North Pole.
Today, one part of the Great White North is actually colder than anywhere else in the world.
Brutally cold night in Alberta tonight, along with the snowstorm. https://t.co/8fNNR9K8sA— Kevin Lloyd 🇨🇦 🏳️🌈 🌩️ 🗞️ 🖥️ (@kevinlovestech) November 11, 2019
Alberta's temperatures plummeted as low as -30°C with wind chill in the past few days, thanks to some Arctic air from the north, which meteorologists at The Weather Network are calling the "strongest cold anomaly on the planet."
The unseasonably cold sweep — which carries the charming epithet of an "Alberta clipper" to locals — started on Saturday, hitting areas around Edmonton and Grande Prairie the hardest last night and this morning.
This is what we call an "Alberta Clipper" to a "Canadian Clipper". Cold air comes over the North Pole (literally) and swoops down on us. Temps are in the mid 20's. It's gonna be a long Winter.— Jamie Rich (@jamerz3294) November 11, 2019
The early onset of winter weather has even affected farmers in the area, some of whom have had to completely cancel fall harvests due to untimely frost damage.
Brrrrr.....it’s pretty cold this weekend in Alberta! Stay safe and warm everyone! 😎 https://t.co/KbeD9ZQGkk— Heart2HeartCards (@Bonnie_Tim_Gray) November 10, 2019
The temperature in Edmonton at this time of year is usually a much more mild 1°C or so.
