Temperatures are locked below normal for this time of year, and it's not looking like there is much improvement in the forecast.
Environment Canada is calling for a high of -20ºC this afternoon — that's the normal overnight low for this time of year — and adding insult to injury is a 30 per cent chance of flurries this morning.
Clearing skies this afternoon won't help much: there's a northwest wind that even at 20 km/h will be enough to push the wind chill to -33.
More clouds are expected tonight, with a chance of more flurries after midnight, as temperatures drop to -25ºC and the wind chill increases to -37.
Tomorrow will be mainly cloudy throughout the day, with a 30 per cent chance of flurries. Westerly winds at 40 km/h will gust to 60 km/h, and even with a high of -16ºC, the wind chill could get to -35.
Skies clear to end the week, but the sun won't bring much heat. The Friday forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of -15ºC, followed by more sun on the weekend but even cooler temperatures. The Saturday high will be -20ºC and the Sunday high just -21ºC.
For Monday, sun will continue, but the high will be -19ºC. At this point, the Tuesday forecast calls for a high of -15ºC and a mix of sun and cloud.
The normal high for this time of year is -9ºC. The normal low is -20ºC.
The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1963, when it got to 8.3ºC. The coldest ever was -36.9ºC, in 1978.
