Wet snow expected today

About an inch of wet snow is expected to fall today, making for a mushy, slushy mess before it all freezes tonight and more snow falls on top of it.

Environment Canada is calling for increasing cloudiness this morning, with snow beginning early this afternoon. About 2 cm will fall this afternoon, with easterly winds at about 20 km/h and a high of 1ºC.

Snow will continue overnight, as temperatures fall to -14ºC, with about 5 cm more piling up before morning.

Winds will pick up overnight to 40 km/h, with northerly gusts as high as 60 km/h. That could cause some issues tomorrow morning with blowing snow.

Tomorrow should see clearing skies, with sun in the afternoon, but temperatures steady around -15ºC through the day. Winds will drop a bit in the early afternoon, and then become light late in the evening.

The weekend will be clear but cold, although there is plenty of seasonal warmth in the sun that will make Saturday's high of -14ºC feel a little warmer than that. Sunday's -11ºC will also feel a little warmer in the sun.

Overnight lows through the weekend will drop to as cold as -25ºC.

Monday should see a mix of sun and cloud to start the workweek, with a high of -11ºC.

Tuesday will be sunny, with a high of -7ºC. At this point, things look to improve Wednesday, with a high of -1ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is 1ºC; the normal low is -9ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1945, when temperatures reached 15.6ºC. The coldest ever was in 1965, when the dropped to -30ºC.
