The forecast for today literally blows.

Environment Canada is calling for mainly cloudy skies and a 60 per cent chance of flurries this afternoon. Those travelling in wide open spaces should be mindful of the possibility of blowing snow, thanks to a wind from the north 40 km/h gusting to 60 km/h.

The high for today is -10 C but with that big breeze it will feel more like -26 with the wind chill.

That wind (and the possibility of some blowing snow) should continue through the evening. Tonight’s low is expected to be around the -26 C mark (wind chill -34).

Thursday, look for mainly sunny skies and crisp temperatures. The high figures to only reach -22 C, with a wind chill rating of -36.

Cool and sunny conditions are expected Friday and through the weekend.
