There's a forecasting feud going on here in Canada and depending on who you put your trust in, it's either going to be a mild winter or a bone-chilling experience.
The Old Farmer's Almanac is calling for a brutally cold winter on the prairies with well below seasonal temperatures that could hit -45, suggesting February will be the worst.
Environment Canada isn't buying it. Their weather specialists say it'll be a warmer than normal winter due to an El Nino in the Pacific. While not expected to be intense, the weather pattern should create a mild winter on the prairies, depending on who you believe.
