It’s here — the cold, that is.
High temperatures are expected to have trouble breaking a ceiling of -20 C for at least the next week.
Today will see a mix of sun and cloud and 40 per cent chance of flurries. A high of -19 C is expected, the warmest temperature for the foreseeable future, but will feel more like -32 with the 20 km/h northwest wind.
It will be mainly cloudy overnight with a low of -25 C.
Saturday will bring clear skies but winds from the southwest now at 20 km/h starting at noon. A high of -23 C but a windchill of -37 is forecast.
Highs and lows for the rest of the week are: Sunday, -21 C and -29 C; Monday, -22C and -26 C; Tuesday, -21 C and -25 C; and Wednesday, -21 C and -28 C.
Road conditions outside Winnipeg are much improved from Thursday but sections of the Perimeter Highway are still reported to be partly covered with snow.
In the city, the clearing of sidewalks on main routes, bus routes and collector streets is almost done, and crews will take aim at back lanes in all areas of the city.
