Skies will gradually clear through the day on Monday with highs between -3°C and -5°C around the city.
|The melt begins|
The rest of the week looks mainly pleasant with no major systems expected (although there may be some flurries at times) and temperatures flirting with the freezing mark. In fact, there's a good chance that we'll finally have a stretch of temperatures at or slightly above freezing late week and next weekend. This would break the now 72-consecutive day stretch without reaching the freezing mark. By the way, as you can see in the table below, this streak is nowhere near record breaking. The longest streak of below zero highs was 108 days, between Nov 9 1996 and Feb 24 1997.
Our streak of 72 days right now is currently 21st longest. We will likely sneak into 20th place which stands at 75 days and perhaps 19th which stands at 78 days, depending on how much longer our streak lasts.
