Very cold today and tonight

Westman woke to an extreme wind chill warning, and very cold temperatures are expected to stick around today and tonight.

Environment Canada says that the temperature dropped below -30ºC overnight last night, and although the winds are nothing like yesterday, they're still enough to push the wind chill to -44.

Today should be sunny, with northwest winds continuing at about 20 km/h. The afternoon should reach a high of -26ºC.

Clear skies tonight will see temperatures drop again, with a low of -32ºC and another extreme wind chill of -44.

Sunny skies tomorrow herald a slightly warmer day, with a high of -18ºC, as winds start the day at about 30 km/h but lighten before evening.

Wednesday is the sole cloudy day in the forecast, with a high of -9ºC and a 60 per cent chance of flurries.

Nearly normal temperatures for the season are expected after that, with sunny skies predicted for Thursday all the way through Sunday, and daytime highs of -13ºC to -15ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is -11ºC. The normal low is -21ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1976, when temperatures reached 2.2ºC. The coldest ever was in 1966, when it dropped to -41.1ºC.
