Tomorrow will dawn cloudy, although it should clear in the afternoon. The thermometer will rise to about -18ºC tomorrow.
Sunday will be sunny, as will Monday, but the high both days will be just -20ºC or even a little colder.
Tuesday will see the start of a mild improvement, with a high of -16ºC under sunny skies, followed by a predicted high of -10ºC on Wednesday. However, the forecast calls for a few clouds and possible flurries by then.
