Hopefully you got the chance to enjoy this spectacular day, because tomorrow is the beginning of a change. A cold front will swing through tonight ushering in drastically cooler temperatures behind it. Temperatures will likely steady or even continue to fall tomorrow afternoon into the minus teens by evening. Although of course, this is just closer to normal :P It will feel much colder with the wind, with blustery north winds of 40 gusting to 50 or 60 km/h expected. Tuesday will be closer to normal as well with morning lows approaching -20 C, and daytime highs struggling to reach -10 C.
Next week looks like the return of above-normal temperatures, although as usual, stay tuned for the latest updates...
P.S. Very little in the way of snow expected in the next week.
