While some people have gone into hibernation, others braved the cold as Toronto experienced the coldest January 5 in city history. The old record low of -20.6 C, set in 1959, was broken on Friday morning when temperatures stood at -23 C.

Congratulations are in order, although this may not be an achievement everyone wants to celebrate. As of Friday morning, the temperature at Toronto's Pearson International Airport has spent 87 hours below freezing so far in November.

If that number seems high, well, that's because it is. It marks the longest stretch on record the site has spent below zero on or before November 15.

Toronto wasn't alone in seeing an unusually-prolonged period below freezing this month. The first 15 days were also the coldest start to November for Ottawa, and Val-d'Or in Quebec. Montreal and Quebec City's temperatures also ranked among the top-3 coldest.

This below-average streak got a helping hand from an early shot of cross-polar air, sending Siberian air across the Arctic and into eastern North America.

Does a cold fall automatically mean a cold winter? Not necessarily. What the jet stream is doing in November doesn't reflect what it will be doing in, say, January.
