The mercury will climb to a point that's downright tolerable today, but it's still not above-normal, and it's going to get cold tomorrow again.
Oh, and it might snow today, too.
Environment Canada is calling for a 30 per cent chance of flurries this morning, under mostly cloudy skies all day, with an afternoon high of -11ºC. Winds from the northwest at 30 km/h, gusting to 50 km/h, could at times push the wind chill to -27.
Clear skies tonight as the temperature dips to -25ºC, but the wind should die down around midnight.
Tomorrow will be cooler, but sunny, with a high of -20ºC and a westerly wind of 30 km/h taking the wind chill up to a possible -37.
After that will come a stretch of sunny days in the minus teens.
Friday will be sunny, with a high of -15ºC, followed by a sunny weekend on Saturday (high of -17ºC) and Sunday (high of -15ºC).
Into next week, Monday and Tuesday are also predicted to be sunny, with daytime highs of -18ºC.
The normal high for this time of year is -10ºC; the normal low is -21ºC.
The coldest it's ever been on this date was in 1966, when it dropped to -39.4ºC. The warmest ever was in 1992, when it rose to 3.1ºC.
