Fort St. John has been basking in favorable winter weather now for nearly a month and a half, but Environment Canada numbers show it is not really that far off the mark for this area.

We have now completed three weeks of February and have yet to record a low temperature of minus 20.

In fact, there have only been two days, with overnight lows of minus twenty or colder since the 13th of January.

In addition, if the current forecast is accurate by midnight Thursday, that period will have been extended to six full weeks.

However, Environment Canada records show even though January and February have "record" lows, of minus 47.2 and minus 42.2 , respectively, they also have "average" lows, of minus 18.4, and minus 15 respectively.

So it turns out what we’ve received in the past 39 days isn’t really all that abnormal, as the average low since January 13th is about minus 16.
