Westman is springing forward into March's mushy middle.
As people contintue to shake off the effects of yesterday morning's time change, struggling to start their days an hour earlier than their circadian rhythm would prefer, Mother Nature is trying to spring forward into the season as well.
After a bitter cold week to start March, temperatures reversed course over the weekend, and they're set to stay mild for the foreseeable future.
Environment Canada is calling for a high of 3ºC this afternoon, with sunny skies through the day that will even bring the UV Index into play. That index will hit 3 today, a value that is considered moderate.
A bit of a breeze through the day, at 30 km/h, will become light early this evening, as temperatures drop to about -11ºC overnight.
Tomorrow should be cloudy, with snow beginning early in the afternoon. About 5 cm is expected to fall tomorrow, but it should be perfect snowball weather, with a high of -3ºC.
The snow won't last long: Wednesday will see a return to sun, with a high of 0ºC, followed by more sun and a high of 5ºC on Thursday.
At this point, it looks like the week will end on a cooler note: A mix of sun and cloud is predicted for Friday, with a high of -3ºC, followed by a sunny weekend, with highs around -4ºC.
The normal high for this time of year is -2ºC; the normal low is -12ºC.
The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1973, when it reach 9.4ºC. The coldest ever was in 1998, when it dropped to -32.6ºC.
