Kylie Kovalenko looks out from the top of the slide for her mother Marina Kovalenko during an afternoon of play at Queen Elizabeth Park on Monday. Despite some cool winds and snow in the next few days, outside playtime should be pretty spectacular by the weekend.

It's cool and it'll get cooler, with two days of off-and-on snow in the forecast.

A morning temperature of -11ºC on Tuesday is expected to fall throughout the day, down to -17ºC this afternoon, Environment Canada says.

Some light snow will end this morning, after which skies should clear, but northwest winds at 30 km/h will push the wind chill to -25 this afternoon.

Clouds return after midnight, as temperatures drop to -24ºC.

Tomorrow morning should be cloudy, with periods of snow that end near noon and a chance of flurries again in the evening. About 2 cm is expected to fall as winds pick up to 50 km/h, gusting to 70 km/h from the northwest. Temperatures will rise dramatically, too, with the high tomorrow poking above zero to hit 2ºC.

Thursday will see a mix of sun and cloud, with a 60 per cent chance of flurries, and continuing wind. Temperatures will be steady around -9ºC.

Friday should see a mix of sun and cloud again, with a lesser chance of flurries, and a high of -7ºC.

The weekend, at this point, looks good, with sunny skies and a high of -2ºC on both Saturday and Sunday.

Monday, should the forecast hold, will also be sunny, with a high of -5ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is -12ºC; the normal low is -23ºC.

The coldest it's ever been on this date was in 1972, when it was -36.7ºC. The warmest ever was in 1942, when it was 3.3ºC.
