broken in Iqaluit, NU, as temperatures rose to a balmy 5.7°C. Pangnirtung on
the Arctic Circle peaked at 8.7°C at a time of year when the normal high is
-21°C. Instead of shovelling snow, people tried coping with rain and icy
roads. February rains occurred only 3 times since 1946, with the last
mid-winter downpour recorded in 1986.
