Brutal cold spell continues

If it's any consolation, today wil be slightly warmer than yesterday.

That's still not very warm, though. Environment Canada is calling for a high of -28ºC this afternoon, with a few clouds this afternoon. Winds of 20 km/h will be enough to push the wind chill to -49.

If that high holds, it'll be a whole half-degree higher than yesterday's maximum temperature. Temperatures this cold are several degrees colder than the normal low for this time of year.

Tonight will be cold again, dropping to -30ºC with cloudy skies that should clear by morning.

Tomorrow will see some clouds return, as temperatures begin a slow climb. The high tomorrow will be -23ºC, followed by sunny skies and a high of -22ºC on Wednesday.

Clouds are in the forecast for Thursday, bringing milder air with them. The Thursday high is forecast to be -9ºC, with Friday predicted to see a chance of flurries and a high of -8ºC.

At this point, the weekend looks nice, with a mix of sun and cloud and a high of -4ºC on Saturday, then -7ºC on Sunday.

The normal high for this time of year is -12ºC; the normal low is -23ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1963, when it was 3.3ºC. But just three years later min 1966, was the coldest ever on this date: -38.9ºC.
