Yup, it was a record.
The mercury plunged to -44.2 degrees Celsius in Prince George yesterday, making it the coldest January 15 on record. The previous record for January 15 was -41.2 degrees Celsius, set in 1979.
While it’s still cold, at -21 degrees Celsius this morning, the extreme cold warning has ended and has been replaced by blowing snow.
The air quality advisory, however, remains in effect.
