March is starting with conditions that would scare most lions: it's coming in more like a polar bear.
Most Manitobans woke up to temperatures of -35 C, and -50 with the wind chill.
Environment Canada has issued a wind chill warning for today across most of Manitoba except Churchill, which has a blizzard warning.
A high of -27 C is expected today in Winnipeg with a wind chill of -49, courtesy of 20 km/h southwest winds. Tonight's low will reach -31 C with a wind chill of -43.
Sunday's high is forecast to hit -20 C with a wind chill of -43.
The high Monday is -17 C warming to -14 C on Tuesday. The wild card is the wind, which Environment Canada doesn't include in its longer-range forecasts.
At least the forecast is for sunny skies and no snow from now until the foreseeable future.
