- Montreal weather this week is going to be COLD - it's the first solid week that Montreal will be below-zero, night and day.
- A couple days will even be dropping down to temperatures colder than Siberia's three largest cities.
- Take a look at the forecast below.
Another week of Montreal weather where we might as well be in Russia! Yes, unfortunately, Montreal will be colder than Siberia's three largest cities this week. And if the Environment Canada forecast is correct, this will be the first solid week this season where we're going to be below-zero both day and night, for seven straight days. The weather this week might have some city dwellers wishing for warmer climates, or opting to just stay indoors and hibernate like a bear!
But, if you're one of those Montrealers who lives for the winter weather and can't wait to use these temperatures (and potential snowy precipitation) to your advantage, you're in luck.
Honestly, we're all in luck because, unlike in Siberia, there is no shortage of things to do in Montreal, and Quebec at large, at this time of year, even if it is freezing cold.
(Okay, that's not fair, I've never been to Siberia, I'm sure they have lots of fun things to do... I bet you could make the world's largest ice carousel if you wanted to.)
Here's the forecast for Montreal this week, according to Environment Canada. You can clearly see it's staying below zero all week.
On the plus side, we'll have lots of sun later in the week and into the weekend.
Yes, it's times like these that I am grateful for all the Christmas markets and winter events that happen in the Greater Montreal because, without them, I might never go outside.
Just hibernate, like I said above. Can you tell I'm a Taurus?
The largest cities in Russia are Novosibirsk, Omsk, and Krasnoyarsk, according to Encyclopaedia Britannica. Below you can see the two-week forecast for Krasnoyarsk.
Did you know, "krasnoya" is the Russian word for "red" and is also the base for the word "krasniy," which means beautiful.
While Krasnoyarsk has it colder tomorrow, according to TimeandDate.com, we'll be suffering worse here, where on Thursday it will be -12 during the day and -18 overnight.
Here are the two-week forecasts for Siberia's two other biggest cities, Novosibirsk and Omsk, according to Timeanddate.com. Again, the week starts out colder than Montreal but warms up as our temperatures start to drop.
Here's hoping that we won't be seeing the same start to next week as Omsk, where it's going to get down to -22 overnight.
And I am hopeful, considering it will only be -4 in Montreal by Sunday, whereas, in Omsk and Krasnoyarsk, it will be hovering around -20 by Sunday night.
No thanks, Siberia.
