Cooling Down up North
Here's the 4pm AST Tuesday (00 UTC Wednesday) surface analysis from Environment Canada. We're finally starting to see some subzero temperatures in far northwest Canada, with a low temperature of -5F this afternoon at Isachsen, NU (78N, 104W). Nowhere else in the northwest Canadian Arctic has been quite that cold thus far, but with a decent snow cover now and open water freeing up, it will not be long.
