Still cold, chance of flurries today and tomorrow

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.
