Another day, another extreme cold warning... At least it didn't get as cold as some forecasts were indicating for this morning. Temperatures ''only'' dipped to -30.3°C at the airport.
A slight warmup for tonight and tomorrow as a weak clipper system moves through. This will bring some light snow tonight, and at times tomorrow. I'm only expecting about 1 or 2 cm of accumulation. Relatively warm with a high close to -10°C tomorrow. There may be a bit of wind behind the system in the afternoon and evening, causing a bit of drifting snow.
Another push of extremely cold air moves over for Saturday and Sunday. Lows in the -30's are likely for Sunday in particular and highs will be in the -20's for both days.
Another one-day warmup for Monday as a system moves southwards from the high arctic into northern Manitoba. This could bring a bit of snow Monday, but I'm not expecting much. Frigid air moves in once again behind the system. It looks like colder than normal conditions will remain for the remainder of the month.
So far, it appears likely this February will finish among the top 25 coldest on record since 1873.
1981-2010 normal highs for the next 7 days range around -5°C to -7°C and normal lows around -16 or -17°C.
