A bit more snow, then getting cold

While areas of the province east of us get whalloped with 15 cm of snow or more, Westman will get hit with the fringes.

Environment Canada is calling for about 2 cm of snow today and another 2 cm tonight, as temperatures begin to inch downward into the minus-twenties.

A northerly breeze, at about 20 km/h, will stir the newfallen snow up a little but, and will take today's high of -14ºC to a wind chill of possibly -27.

Periods of snow will continue overnight, as will the wind, and temperatures will drop to a low of -20ºC.

Tomorrow should see a mix of sun and cloudy, with good chance of a few final flurries in the morning, then an afternoon high of -17ºC.

Sunny skies are expected after that, with a high of -19ºC on Friday, then a high of -23ºC on Saturday and a high of -21ºC on Sunday.

Through the weekend and into next week, overnight lows will be down around -30ºC.

At this point, Monday and Tuesday are predicted to be sunny, with highs of -22ºC.

A year ago today, it clouded over in the afternoon, as temperatures reached -11.7, after an early-morning low of -18.5ºC.

The coldest it's ever been on this date was in 1991, when it was -31.7ºC. The warmest ever was in 1979, when it reached 5.4ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is -7ºC; the normal low is -17ºC.
