Snow coming, but so are warmer temperatures

Despite a wretched start to March, the month looks like it will head in a milder direction soon.

Environment Canada is calling for increasing cloudiness through the day today, with a 30 per cent chance of flurries this afternoon, but that unsettled weather also comes with a slight rise in the temperature — up to a high of -15ºC this afternoon.

Cloudy skies tonight and a continuing chance of flurries will keep it relatively mild overnight, with a low of -19ºC.

Snow is expected tomorrow, about 2 cm of it, with southerly winds at 30 km/h and gusts up to 50 km/h as the termperature rises to -8ºC in the afternoon. Winds will lighten in the evening.
