How cold is it in Ottawa? Very.


How cold it is in Ottawa this week?

Environment Canada ended and then re-issued an extreme cold warning

The Bell Capital Cup has cancelled outdoor games on the Parliament Hill rink due to brittle ice conditions.  (It’s too cold for the ice!)


Ottawa Police are warning about dangerous black ice. Often in extreme cold weather it’s too cold for road salt to be effective.


Ottawa Public Health has issued a frostbite advisory “until further notice” (yikes!).


We could set an all-time weather record for consecutive super-cold days.


Crews are flooding the Rideau Canal Skateway and it’s possible it could open before New Year’s Eve.

They still issued a press release on Friday to urge the public to stay off the ice.


We are the coldest world capital this week!


The cold weather is making for some beautiful photos…


And folks are maintaining their sense of humour through it all…
