Roughly two weeks into winter... so far, pretty harsh

Windchills of -40 give way to highs on the plus side

Those complaining that the weather has been especially rough over the last few weeks aren't entirely wrong..

Experts say conditions this year have been particularly harsh, starting with temperatures recently flirting with -40 over the island

"This winter has been real good one, it's real strong winter; cold temperatures, we've broken many records", said Environment Canada meteorologist Bruno Marquis.

Marquis says weather is expected to remain erratic as temperatures will rise above zero on Monday and then plummet again on Tuesday.

He blamed a warm air system moving in from Texas late Sunday for the increase in temperature.

A cooler system from the West will then replace it on Tuesday, bringing temperatures down to -13.
