It was cold, but it wasn't record breaking for Kenora or Dryden over the weekend.
Environment Canada's Gerald Cheng explained.
"If you look at the record for Kenora and Dryden, we got really close to the record, specifically for Sunday Morning. Kenora got down to minus 36.8 but it didn't break the record of minus 37.8 set back in 1950. Dryden got really close, it got down to minus 39.2, but the old record was minus 41.7" he explained.
He said Sioux Lookout was the lone record breaker out of the three communities.
"Sioux Lookout broke the old record that was set back in 1951. It got down to minus 43.9 Sunday morning, breaking the old record of minus 39.4. So, that is exceptional," he said.
Cheng said the cold snap is thanks to the polar air coming down to Northern Ontario.
He explained that it's the trade off for no big snow storms in the region at the moment.
