KAMLOOPS — Here's proof it's really cold out.

Meteorologists are forecasting Monday's daytime high of -3 to be the coldest recorded on November 6th in 45 years.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Matt MacDonald says the mass of arctic air hanging over the province is bringing temperatures ten degrees below normal for November.

He says the last time temperatures came close to today's was in 1973 at -2.8 degrees.

The coldest November 6th on record was in 1945 at -4.4 degrees.

MacDonald says the good news is the frigid air will begin to travel north by mid week.

"We'll start to see temperatures moderate a little bit and gradually warm up to the freezing mark."

The bad news? 

Warmer temperatures could bring the city's next blast of snow Thursday.
