It's another cold day in store today, but things will improve by the end of the week — temperature-wise, at least.
Environment Canada is calling for sunny skies, with a high of -21ºC this afternoon. North winds this morning could push the wind chill as low as -40, but they will calm by noon.
Clear skies tonight will help the temperature drop down to -31ºC before tomorrow morning, but temperatures start to rise a bit after that.
Tomorrow should see mainly sunny skies, with a bit of cloudiness in the afternoon, and a high of -10ºC. It'll be windy, though, with peaks in the afternoon of 40 km/h from the southwest, gusting to 60 km/h, which could cause a nasty wind chill at times.
Friday will be cloudy and windy, but mild, with a high of 0ºC.
Saturday will cool off a bit, with a high of -7ºC and continuing cloudiness that could bring a chance of flurries.
Sun returns on Sunday, as do cooler temperatures. The Sunday high will be -21ºC, followed by a similar day on Monday.
At this point, the Tuesday forecast calls for more sun and a high of -16ºC.
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 1966, when it was -39.4ºC. The warmest ever was in 1942, when it was 3.9ºC.
