The good news is there will be plenty of sunshine in southern Manitoba the next few days.

The bad news is Environment Canada forecasts below-normal temperatures.

For today, look for clear skies and a daytime high of -25 C.

This morning, wind chill values are in the low -40s.

And the ugly news is the situation will get worse before it gets better.

Monday through Thursday, Environment Canada is calling for high temperatures to reach only into the -25 C to -29 C range with wind chills around the -40 mark.

Overnight lows should drop down to -35 C and below, so plug in the car if you’re not already doing so.

On Friday, the daytime high will get 'wamer' at - 19 C.

The normal high for this time of year is -13 C; the normal low is -23 C.
