Cold today, with flurries

Temperatures will bounce around this week, which will also see swings between sun and cloud, snow and wind.

Environment Canada says early-morning winds today of up to 30 km/h should lighten up before noon, with snow tapering off as well, and skies then clearing. But blowing snow could be an issue in some areas.

Temperatures will stay steady near -23ºC today, with a morning wind chill as low as -34.

Clear skies tonight will send the temperature down to -28ºC overnight, with clouds rolling in after midnight, and a 60 per cent chance of flurries before morning.

Tomorrow will see a continuing chance of flurries before noon, and cloudy skies most of the day, although they'll clear again in the evening. A bit of a breeze will keep the high of -12ºC feeling a little cooler, with wind chills of -28 at times.

Wednesday will be cold anc clear, with a high of -23ºC, and a low that night into the -30s for the first time in weeks.

Thursday will see a mix of sun and cloud, with again a good chance of flurries and a high of -13ºC.

Friday looks to end the week on a warm spot, with a mix of sun and cloud and a predicted high of -4ºC.

On Saturady and Sunday, the current forecast calls for mixed skies and a high of -10ºC both days.

The normal high for this time of year is -12ºC. The normal low is -22ºC.

The coldest it's ever been on this date was in 1943, when it dropped to -42.8ºC. The warmest ever was in 1944, when it was 6.7ºC.
