Canada Wide Forecast, Canada Weather MapColin MacIntyreComment

Most of the country is a little warmer today then yesterday; many cities who were a Long John Index of 3 yesterday have shuffled off to a 2 or 1. Big Snowfall in Saskatchewan, where the population will be moving to snowforts, and commuting by Sled Dog. Elsewhere, Red Deer wants to be the coldest and Fredericton wants to have prairie weather!
