Montreal is colder than Moscow on Monday. According to Environment Canada, temperatures in the Quebec metropolis plunged to a freezing -16 C (-20 windchill) at 10:00 a.m. while, at the same time, the Russian capital was enjoying a mild -9 C (-16 windchill ), by Le RÃ©seau MÃ©tÃ©o.
Montreal is cooler than other stereotypically frigid European cities, including Helsinki (where it is -3 C, according to The Weather Network), Saint Petersburg (-6 C) and the municipality of TromsÃ¸ (-13 C by The Weather Channel) in northern Norway. .
Temperatures are also lower than in Siberia’s largest city, Novosibirsk, where The Weather Network says it is -8 Â° C (the northernmost city in Siberia is cooler, however: -41 Â° C).
With a temperature of -3 Â° C, the McMurdo Antarctic Base in the United States, where it is currently summer, is also warmer than Montreal.
The city is not done with its cold streak either.
Environment Canada says temperatures drop to -17 C Monday evening. The rest of the week will be more reasonable, with daytime temperatures ranging from -1 C to -6 C, according to the same forecast.
By Saturday, however, Montrealers could return to double-digit negative daytime temperatures.
The Weather Network predicts things will get even darker the following week. The site’s 14-day forecast shows nighttime temperatures of -27 C on Monday, January 10, and daytime temperatures of -8 C to -17 C throughout next week.
We could also experience even more precipitation. Environment Canada forecasts indicate a risk of snow every day from Tuesday January 4 to Sunday January 9.
