Sunny but cold days lie ahead

  • Print

YOU like sunshine? Well, you're in luck.

Environment Canada says southern Manitoba is in for a lovely stretch of bright, sunny days. But there's a catch.

A ridge of high-pressure Arctic air has settled in, making for some bitterly cold temperatures this week, including a high of just -24 C today and a low of -34 C tonight. There's also an extreme wind-chill warning for this evening, as the breeze will make it feel like -44.

The deep freeze continues as the week progresses.

The expected high Tuesday is only -29 C, while Wednesday's daytime high under a bright sky is -27 C.

There's no snow in the forecast until Friday, giving the city time to get caught up on its snow-clearing duties. Crews continued to plow major routes, bus routes and collector streets Sunday. Sidewalk plowing started Saturday night, while back lane snow clearing was scheduled to begin Sunday morning.

The City of Winnipeg released a reminder Sunday that a declared snow route parking ban remains in effect until further notice.

There was no parking on city-designated snow routes between the hours of midnight Sunday and 7 a.m. this morning. The city will issue a statement when the declared parking ban is lifted. Cars parked in violation of the ban will receive a $100 ticket and might be towed at the owner's expense.

Now that former cabinet minister Theresa Oswald has entered the NDP leadership race, do you believe the "gang of five" rebel ministers were right to publicly criticize Premier Greg Selinger's leadership?
