If you’re reading this, step away from the computer and get outside!

 

After weeks of bitter chill, Winnipeg will see the temperature rise to an astonishingly mild 1C today — a feat no less amazing given it’s the middle of January.

 

That said, Environment Canada says to expect gusty winds this afternoon upwards of 50 km/h will make it feel colder than the temperature might suggest at first blush.

 

But hey, we’ll take what we can get, right?

 

Looking to the week ahead, the weather agency forecasts a chilly, but sunny Monday and Tuesday, with highs of -12C and -13C respectively, with lows that don’t break the -20C barrier, but come close.

 

Wednesday will have people working outdoors jumping for joy as the temperature will soar to -1C with a low of a paltry -9C with periods of snow expected.

 

Milder temperatures will persist through to Saturday under sunny skies, says Environment Canada.
