More frosty weather on the way; some schools closed

  • Print

This would be a good time to take a warm vacation.

Environment Canada calls for bitterly cold temperatures for Winnipeg and the surrounding area this week. Today, look for sunny skies and a high of only -18 C, with northwest wind 20 km/h bringing wind chill values in the -36 range.

The weather service has already issued an extreme wind chill warning for most of the western Manitoba region, including areas around Brandon, Virden, Souris, Dauphin, Riding Mountain National Park and Swan River. With wind chills expected to linger around -40 this morning, frostbite on exposed skin may occur in less than 10 minutes.

In Lakeshore School Division, all schools are closed.

For tonight in Winnipeg, there’s a 40 per cent chance of flurries. It will be a cold one, too, with a low of -25 C.

This icy grip will continue to hold the city by the throat Tuesday, with a forecast high of only -21 C. The wind will be northwest 30 km/h gusting to 50 km/h, giving wind chills near -40.

Snow and slightly warmer temperatures are expected Wednesday.
