January is typically the coldest month of the year and in Haliburton, that’s likely to be true once again.
But, Environment Canada Meteorologist Peter Kimbell suggests, that may not mean we’re looking at a long-term arctic chill the county has seen in past years.

“I don’t think there’s any real clear signal of deep freeze,” says Kimbell. “We’ll be having a high of minus 13 on Thursday, high of minus 13 Friday, that’s below normal, but it’s not really a sustained deep freeze. Once you get up to seven days it’s just too difficult to go beyond that.”

Kimbell says there is also a potential we could see pockets of warmth pop up a few times during the month. He says when it comes to a snowfall forecast, it’s too hard to tell in advance what the county can expect.
