Despite yesterday's light snowfall — the city saw about an inch of snow — melting will be underway today and tomorrow.
Environment Canada is calling for a high of 1ºC this afternoon, as skies clear past noon. Combined with the sun, that should be enough to get some mushiness on the streets and sidewalks.
A few clouds tonight, with even more after midnight, will keep things fairly mild through until tomorrow, with a pre-dawn low of -6ºC.
Tomorrow should see a mix of sun and cloud with a stiff breeze picking up through the day, gusting at times as high as 60 km/h. However, there won't be any wind chill — not with a high of 5ºC.
Friday, too, should see a mix of sun and cloud, with temperatures steady around -5ºC.
The weekend will be cooler, with a high of -9ºC under sunny skies on Saturday, followed by clouds and a good chance of flurries on Sunday. Temperatures on Sunday should recover to about -4ºC, despite overnight lows around -17ºC.
Monday and Tuesday should see a mix of sun and cloud, with highs just below 0ºC and a chance of flurries on Tuesday.
The normal high for this time of year is -1ºC; the normal low is -12ºC.
The warmest it's ever been this date was just a couple of years ago. It touched 8.9ºC on March 12, 2012. The coldest ever was in 1956, when it dropped to -32.2ºC.
