Increasing cloudiness is also expected near noon, with a 40 per cent chance of flurries late this afternoon and this evening.
Cloudy skies are expected tonight, with a low of -24ºC, although things should clear up tomorrow morning.
A bit of a breeze is expected tomorrow, with a high of -20ºC.
Wedesday will stay cold, with sunny skies but a high of -20ºC.
A brief respite on Thursday will see a high of -15ºC, before it gets cold again. The Friday high will be -20ºC, and there could be more flurries that day.
At this point, Saturday and Sunday look to see highs of -24ºC and then -18ºC respectively.
