North Pole and Mars are warmer than Winnipeg right now

Winnipeg’s temperature as cold as surface of Mars. Mars’ weather today has a high of minus -7C where Winnipeg’s high today is only minus -30C. The entire province was under an extreme wind chill warning on Monday and it seems like it’ll stay for the rest of the day tomorrow. North Pole, AK, USA’s weather right now is only -6C. While the “real” North Pole in Nunavut is -30C today.

Winnipeggers have become accustomed and would actually consider pretty balmy on Mars, considering the fact that the average temperature any day on Mars is -70°C, and it can get as cold as -130°C on any given winter night. We’re still lucky! (Sort of)

Exposure to the cold can be hazardous or even life-threatening. Your body’s extremities, such as the ears, nose, fingers and toes, lose heat the fastest. Exposed skin may freeze, causing frostnip or frostbite. In extreme conditions or after prolonged exposure to the cold, the body core can also lose heat, resulting in hypothermia.
