It may not feel like it now but a reprieve from the cold is coming.
Let’s start with the forecast for today, which is a continuation of what we’ve been experiencing the last five weeks or so. Environment Canada is calling for sunny skies and a high of -22 C, with an extreme wind chill of -43 this morning.
Tonight, Winnipeg and the surrounding area will start to shake this arctic chill. Periods of light snow and blowing snow will start overnight, and winds will blow from the south 40 km/h gusting to 60 km/h. The temperature will rise to -16 C by morning.
For Thursday, look for the light snow to continue into the morning with mainly cloudy skies. The daytime high will reach -8 C (wind chill values in the -25 range).
The above normal temperatures will continue Friday through the weekend, with a forecast high of -3 C expected for Sunday.
