  1. I have lived through -65C in the middle of the night in Fort Francis, Ont, Canada. That was in 1995.
    In day time it was -45C and sunny at noon time for three days in the row!

    The temperatures in Canada are in Celsius.

    There were colder temperatures then -44. Watson Lake was -48, but it was that cold last year also. That temperature is still 10 degrees from it’s all time low. It’s cold but nothing unusual.

  3. Please note that -40 Celsius is identical to -40 Fahrenheit. Minus forty degrees is the same in degrees-F and degrees-C. The two scales happen to match precisely at that point…and only at that single value.
