Sunny but cold

There's plenty of sun in the forecast, but precious little warmth.

Environment Canada is calling for a high of -20ºC this afternon — five degrees colder than the normal low for this time of year.

That high will come with a northwest wind of 20 km/h that will make it feel even colder, but sunny skies could help take some of the edge off if you're out of the wind.

A few couds are expected overnight, as the wind increases to about 30 km/h, and temperatures drop to -24ºC. That could push the wind chill to as low as -38.

Tomorrow should be mainly sunny, with a high of -14ºC fairly early in the day, but wind gusts of up to 60 km/h are expected, and temperatures will fall through the afternoon to about -19ºC, on their way to a low of -32ºC tomorrow night.

Thursday will see sunny skies with a high of -16ºC followed by a high on Friday of -19ºC. Friday could also see clouds and some periods of snow.

The first of March, on Saturday, will be bitterly cold — dawning like a real lion at a low of -36ºC and reaching a daytime high of just -24ºC, despite clear skies and plenty of sun.

Sunday, too, should be cold, with sunny skies and a high of -20ºC.

At this point, Monday will continue the trend, with a high of -16ºC and sunny skies.

The normal high for this time of year is -5ºC; the normal low is -15ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1958, when it soared to 9.4ºC. The coldest ever was in 1962, when it reached -34.4ºC.
