By: Mikeman444 , 11:15 PM GMT on February 03, 2014

First a look back. January 2014 was the complete opposite of the forecast with little more than half the normal snowfall and temperatures 6C above normal. another notable event was on January 15th when the region experienced on of the strongest wind storms in recorded history.
Hurricane force wind gusts whipped chunks of ice and debris across highways and blew over transport trucks. Most tree damage was to evergreens. Some Structures were damaged however there we not injuries from the storm, the winds also broke temperature records with some places reaching 16C(60F).

February 2014 Forecast for Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.
Issued 4:15pm Monday February 4th 2014.

Overall the return of the Arctic vortex will bring brutal cold much like what we saw in December. Snowfall may not be as high but May total more than normal.

Feb 1-10: Becoming very cold, somewhat dry.

Feb 10-20: Very cold with heavy snow, blizzard risk

Feb 20-28: Remaining cold, slight chance of a warmup. Heavy snow with blizzard risk
