The good news is we are through another month of winter and that much closer to spring. The bad news is that we’re not there yet.

Below-normal temperatures continue to make up the Environment Canada forecast for Winnipeg today and into the start of February. Look for increasing cloudiness and a 30 per cent chance of light flurries this afternoon, with a high of -18 C. Wind chill values will fall into the -39 range.

Tonight is calling for a low of -26 C with a slight chance of flurries.

The normal high/low temperatures for this time of year are -11 C and -21 C.

The weekend should be nothing but sunshine and crisp conditions. Saturday will see clearing around noon and a high of -18 C (wind chill -36). Sunny skies and a high of -16 C are expected for Sunday.
