Canada is feeling the chill, with Arctic winds taking hold of northern Canada.
On Monday, WX-Now reported that 5 out of 10 of the coldest places on Earth were in Canada -- in Yukon, to be more specific.
Yukon's Beaver Creek took the top spot Monday morning, making it the coldest place in the world at -35ºC,
Burwash, Yukon, took the sixth spot at -31°C, while Dawson City, Yukon, took eighth at -30°C. Meanwhile, Carmacks, Yukon, recorded a brisk -29°C.

What's going on here?
"A system moving across northern Canada has opened the door for Arctic air to escape the poles and sink south," says Weather Network meteorologist Rachel Modestino.
"Northwesterly winds behind its fronts ushered in frigid temperatures across Yukon. A lobe of the polar vortex, which holds the coldest air on Earth, had tilted over northern Canada and Russia on Monday."
Canada has experienced mild conditions but a significant pattern shakeup started last week, with winter-like weather on the Prairies.
The second round of the pattern shakeup moved in Monday, bringing temperatures in the Yukon way down.
