Global warming hits Edmonton....
Wow....-58 degrees wind chill....
Sunday marked the coldest Dec. 13 in Edmonton’s history.
Environment Canada recorded a frigid -46.1 C, or -58.4 C with wind chill, at the Edmonton International Airport at 5 a.m., Environment Canada meteorologist Pierre Lessard said.
The old record of -36.1 C was set last year, he said.
“To break a temperature by 10 degrees is very exceptional,” said Lessard.
A ridge of frigid Arctic air has hit all the prairie provinces this weekend, causing record-low temperatures in many parts of northern Alberta, Lessard said.
