Cool morning, warmer but snow tonight

Dressed for winter, a pedestrian walks past a wintry scene painted on a downtown window earlier this month. Real snowflakes are expected tonight and intermittently through the weekend.

A cool start to the day will give way to a cloudy, warmer afternoon, with snow in the forecast overnight.

Environment Canada says that temperatures should rise to about -6ºC this afternoon, after hitting -22ºC early this morning.

Cloudy skies will prevail all day, however, and snow is expected to start falling tonight. Only about 5 cm is expected, but 30 km/h winds gusting to 50 km/h may stir things up a bit, causing issues with visibility.

A continuing chance of flurries tomorrow morning will kick off the weekend, as winds continue to gust at 40–60 km/h tomorrow afternoon, with temperatures reaching a high of -4ºC after a morning dip to -9ºC.

Periods of snow will continue on Sunday, with a high of -7ºC, but sunny skies are expected on Monday, as temperatures drop to stick at -19ºC for the start of the work week.

It's a one-day chill, however, with more flurries possible on Tuesday and a high of -9ºC.

Wednesday and Thursday next week should be sunny, with a high of -14ºC on Wednesday and -8ºC on Thursday.

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

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1944, when it was 3.9ºC. The coldest was just a year earlier, in 1943, when it dropped to -37.2ºC.
