WINNIPEG – Winnipeg is in a deep freeze this morning, waking up to a -34 C temperature and wind chill values in the -45 range.
School bus service is cancelled in all city school divisions today: Winnipeg, Louis Riel, Pembina Trails, River East Transcona, Seven Oaks' St. James Assiniboia.
There are no classes and no buses running today in the Interlake School Division and Lord Selkirk School Division because of the extreme cold. Staff in the Selkirk division are expected to report for work.
To include your division, school or community activity centre in the list of cancellations, email the Free Press at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The forecast today calls for sunny skies with the occasional cloudy periods and a high of -24 C. The slight wind out of the northwest (15 km/h) should make it feel a lot colder, however.
Tonight’s low is -27 C.
Environment Canada is calling for a warmer Wednesday (high of -12 C) before we fall back into the freezer again. Daytime highs for the remainder of the work week are only expected to climb into the -20 C to -22 C range.
