Clearing today, warm up in sight

You'll need big machines to help dig out of yesterday's snowfall.

You'll need big machines to help dig out of yesterday's snowfall.

It'll be bright, clear and still most of the day — perfect for digging out of the overnight snow dump.

Environment Canada is calling for skies to clear before noon, as even a light breeze drops to nearly still later this morning. However, it remains below normal for a couple more days, and there are more possible flurries on the way.

Today's high should hit just -16ºC, under sunny skies, although more clouds are expected this evening. There's a slight chance of flurries overnight, with a low of -23ºC.

Tomorrow will be cloudy, with a contiuing chance of flurries, as temperatures improve to about -13ºC — a relatively chilly Valentine's Day that is made for cuddling.

Saturday will be cool again, but sunny, with a high of -15ºC, before temperatures really turn the corner on Sunday.

Although cloudy, with a good chance of flurries, the mercury will soar on Sunday to a high of -3ºC. That's the warmest it's been in about four weeks.

Monday will continue the trend, with sunny skies and a high of 0ºC. Tuesday will be similar, with a high right at the melting point, and a mix of sun and cloud.

At this point, the forecast predicts a mix of sun and cloud on Wednesday, too, with a high of -1ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is -8ºC. The normal low is -18ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1983, when it was 3.9ºC. The coldest ever was in 1979, when it was -36.2ºC.
