I wonder how many major world cities with a metro area greater than 1 million have recorded a freeze so early outside of Russia and Scandinavia.

It wouldn't be uncommon for places like Prague, Vienna, Munich, Berlin, Warsaw, Strasbourg, etc. to go below zero for the first team of the season around this time of year.

A friend of mine who is from France but lives in Quebec posted a weather warning for snowfall in her home region of France on FB this week. And she's from central France nowhere near the Alps.

Nothing near that here yet. Highs of 17C today and 19C tomorrow with lows of 11C and 12C respectively.

There is chill in the wind, and it smell like autumn and in a few days it will be only a high of 13C and a low of
8C.

They are predicting fog on Sunday. We've had a few days of fog already this year. I love it as it weaves it way in off the water and surrounds the buildings. Fog horns echoing in the distance.

You are probably correct... I'll revive my question in January and then we can make comparisons with other world cities

I haven't see white rooftoops yet in my neighbourhood in Gatineau. Though we've been very close to freezing: 0.3C on my home thermometer one morning a week or so ago.
Though they are calling for snow in Montreal Ottawa and Quebec City tomorrow morning.

Ask the question tomorrow...which major cities in the world are going to have snow tomorrow in the middle of October? They are going to be in Canada, Russia or Scandinavia. And I don't think that the major Scandinavian cities like Oslo & Stockholm have snow this early and for sure not Copenhagen. But really only the far northern places that are the equivalent of Whitehorse.

Last year the prairies had their first significant snow accumulation in early September. The 10th of September or so.

Hopefully only flurries! My pool is still open and my gazebo still has the cloth cover on it! Cushions are still out...

The biggest snowfalls on record in Calgary happen in September, October, May, or June.

I'm hoping BC fails miserably in terms of it's climate this winter and gets some good snowfall so when I visit my parents I'll actually be able to get some good ski days in.

Not just skiing. We need a good snow pack so that we don't have to go through another summer of water restrictions.
