Skate on the canal while you can, forecast is for 5 C by Saturday

By the Citizen, January 25, 2018

This week’s cold snap means that the Rideau Canal will be back open to skaters — all 7.8 km of it — starting at noon Thursday.

While the wake-up temperature was -17 C that felt more like -28, Thursday’s forecast is for perfect skating weather with mainly sunny skies, a high of -9 C and a low of -12 C.
