Winter Cities

Beginning around the end of October the menswear blog-sphere is awash in how to dress for winter articles. Apparently for most men in the northern hemisphere winter-wear means putting a sweater on under an uninsulated jacket and calling it done. I know Edmonton is one of the colder cities on the planet but this train of thought got me wondering just how much colder. 20 minutes of quick-and-dirty research gave me an answer – a lot colder actually! It turns out that a jacket and sweater may indeed be all that’s required for winter in much of the world. But I don’t live there! To sum it all up I made a chart.



What did I learn:
  • Edmonton is cold!
  • Milan is colder than I would have thought.
  • Moscow is warmer than I had expected.
  • The main population centers of Siberia are about as cold as the Canadian Prairies.
  • Seoul has a real winter!
  • It seems no major cities in the southern hemisphere have what I would classify as winter.
More About the Chart
  • I realize that charting a single data point can’t tell the whole story of winter in any particular city but it is good enough for my purposes.
  • The data came from the World Weather Information Service.
  • I charted the average-daily-low temperature to get a sense of what the normal worst-case conditions are like. If I had used a straight daily-average most cities on the chart would not have negative values. Also bear in mind that the average-daily-low temperature is most likely to occur in the very early morning.
  • The chart only includes cities with populations of 1,000,000 or more. This seems to be common criterion when referring to large cities. In Canada the cities of Winnipeg, Regina, Yellowknife, Iqaluit and Whitehorse are colder than Edmonton. All are provincial or territorial capitals but none meets the size requirement for inclusion in the chart.
