Hey there, time traveller!

Early-morning wet snow and slush will give way to just a cold rain later today, as temperatures stay stuck in the single digits.
Environment Canada is calling for a high of 5ºC this afternoon, nearly 10 degrees below normal for this time of year. Also today will be periods of rain totalling some 5–10 cm, and easterly winds at 30 km/h.
The rain should end late this evening, with skies clearing overnight. That'll send temperatures below freezing, down to -3ºC.
But tomorrow should see sun, and a high of 9ºC, followed by a similar Wednesday that will have a mix of sun and cloud, as well as a high of 8ºC.
Thursday should be cloudy, with a high of 8ºC and a slight chance of showers.
Friday looks to end the week with a mix of sun and cloud, and a high of 8ºC, followed by a slight rise for next weekend. Saturday should see a mix of sun and cloud, with a high of 9ºC, followed by sun on Sunday and a possible high of 10ºC.
The normal high for this time of year is 14ºC; the normal low is 2ºC.
The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1952, when it soared to 32.2ºC. But the coldest was just a few years later, in 1958, when it dropped to -12.2ºC.
On this date in 1984, followed a record-setting whallop of snow the day before, there was a record 25 cm of snow on the ground.
