Stretch of bitterly cold days continues

  • Print

According to Environment Canada, the normal high in Winnipeg for this time of year is -5 C.

That warmth (for lack of a better term) seems so far away right now, doesn’t it?

Instead of reasonable seasonable temperatures, Winnipeg and the surrounding area gets more of the cold stuff today. The forecast high is a chilly -19 C, though hopefully the sunny skies will take some of the bite out of the air.

Tonight, look for the clouds to roll in and a 60 per cent chance of flurries. The low will drop down to -23 C, with wind chills in the -34 range.

A 60 per cent chance of flurries is on tap for Friday morning, with a north wind 40 km/h gusting to 60 km/h into the afternoon. Expect blowing snow in open areas and colder temperatures. The high is forecast to be -20 C; it will feel like -39 with the wind chill.

This latest deep freeze continues into the weekend, with a high of just -24 C on Saturday.
