AbstractA logical method of arriving at winter design temperatures for Canadian conditions is described. The method makes use of the probable frequency of occurrence of low temperatures during January. A tabulation of design temperatures on four different bases of frequency of occurrence is presented for 15 Canadian localities and these temperatures are compared with the design temperatures in common use. An outline map of Canada with winter design temperature lines is included. It is shown that at Toronto and Montreal, city weather stations report winter temperatures slightly higher than those read at the adjacent airports.
