Cold and windy today

Children play hockey during Skate the Lake in Minnedosa earlier this month. Continuing chilly temperatures will make it plenty safe on the ice in most places.

Children play hockey during Skate the Lake in Minnedosa earlier this month. Continuing chilly temperatures will make it plenty safe on the ice in most places.

Despite a mild-feeling morning, temperatures will drop this afternoon — and keep dropping tonight.

One thing that won't drop is the wind.

Environment Canada says that temperatures will reach a high of about -15ºC today, but cold air will flood in through the afternoon, dropping the mercury to -20ºC, as winds pick up to 40 km/h, with gusts of up to 60 km/g. That could take the wind chill to -31.

A mix of sun and cloud today will persist this evening, with a few clouds overnight. Winds will lighten a bit overnight, but temperatures will drop to -33ºC overnight, with an extreme wind chill of -40.

Increasing cloudiness is expected tomorrow, with a 60 per cent chance of flurries Thursday evening. The high will be -16ºC.

Friday should see sun, with a high of -21ºC but temperatures will plummet to -41ºC (that's the temperature, not the wind chill) on Friday night. That's within a degree of the record for that date.

Saturday will see sun and a high of -24ºC, followed by a high of -20ºC on Sunday.

Clear skies persist into next week, with slightly better temperatures. At this point, the forecast calls for a high of -18ºC on Monday and a high of -14ºC on Tuesday.

The normal high for this time of year is -5ºC; the normal low is -15ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1988, when it reached 7.5ºC. The coldest ever was in 1962, when it dropped to -39.4ºC.
