If you’ve had enough snow for the moment there’s some good news: sunshine is coming.
Flurries in the foreseeable forecast future should wrap up Friday. There’s only a 30 per cent chance of the white fluffy stuff today and tonight and then skies begin to clear.
But with clearer skies often come lower temperatures, so be prepared to bundle up.
While the temperature will rise to -5 C early today by the afternoon it will drop to -7 C (with wind chill near -14) and then down to -12 C tonight.
Saturday will have a high of only -12 C and a wind chill somewhere around -20. It will be mainly cloudy.
The low for the week bottoms out Saturday night at -18 C.
Sunday should be bright and sunny with a high of -11 C. The low will be -15 C.
Monday will likely be a mix of sun and clouds with a high of -9 C and a low of -14 C.
Tuesday will be very similar with a high of -8 C and a low of -15 C.
Right now, both Wednesday and Thursday look to have similar temperatures with brilliantly clear and sunny skies.
Normal averages for this time of the year are highs a bit below -6 C and lows close to -16 C.
The sun was up at 7:33 a.m. this morning and it will set at 4:55 p.m.
Environment and Climate Change Canada indicates that 6.6 cm of snow fell yesterday, as observed at the Macdonald–Cartier International Airport.
