After 16 days with above average temperatures in eastern Canada, simultaneously with Arctic outbreak in the USA, extremely cold weather hit parts of eastern Canada.
In Parc National des Pingualuit, northern Quebec only -27,0°Cwas on Thursday, 22. April 2021, measured, what is very near to all-time provincial temperature records for this season.
Along Saint Lawrence River, southern Quebec, even around 30 cm of snow has fallen in last days.
Maximum temperatures in southern, relatively densely populated Quebec regionally didn´t reach more than 0°C during last days and in northern Quebec, Arctic days, with maximum temperatures below -10°C appeared.
On the other hand, Alaska only before a few days reported almost summer +23,9°C / 75°F. Until 20. April however, Quebec reported extremely warm and dry weather, while in Alaska in early April, -42,7°C / -45°F was measured.
