Winnipeg Christmas colder than the North Pole

Temperatures are going to be noticeably colder in Winnipeg and across southern Manitoba starting Dec. 24 and staying that way until 2018.

As cold, arctic air descends over the Canadian prairies, it will push temperatures down well below normal. As this happens, some warmer air will make its way up into the arctic circle. It will actually be colder here than at the North Pole.

Christmas Day in Winnipeg could easily start with extreme cold warnings in effect.

Wind chill values will be very close to -40 with temperatures near -30 degrees Celsius and only warming up to -25 C.

Meanwhile in the North Pole, a Norwegian forecast site expects Dec. 25 temperatures to get up to -23 C. Boxing Day in the North Pole will be even warmer, expected to get to -17 C.
