Today’s forecasted high of -16 is a bit warmer than yesterday, but the bitter wind we’ve been enjoying isn’t going anywhere.

The day will start sunny but with increasing cloudiness in the afternoon. The wind will be blowing at 20 km/h, becoming southerly late in the afternoon. Expect a wind chill of -39 this morning and -22 this afternoon. There is a risk of frostbite today.

Tonight, the skies will be cloudy with a 40-per-cent chance of flurries this evening, beginning near midnight. About two centimetres is expected. The wind will be gusting to 50 km/h out of the south, but swinging to the southwest and rising to 40 km/h with gusts up to 70 km/h after midnight. A wind chill of -27 is expected this evening, softening to -18 overnight. By Thursday morning, the temperature should climb to -9.
