Calendar says spring starts Thursday, but ...
The calendar may say spring is nearly here, but with lows expected near -26 C tonight, someone clearly forgot to tell winter it was time to go.
After a day of -10 C on Sunday, the mercury was set to plunge overnight, with a windchill of about -33. On Monday, the thermometer will rise to -7, with mostly sunny skies expected, before falling again to a chilly -24 overnight.
The forecast calls for things to heat up by midweek, with highs of -3 on Tuesday and a balmy 2 degrees on Wednesday. However, snow will start Wednesday and continue through Thursday, with temperatures hovering around the freezing mark on the first day of spring. Things turn cold again on the weekend.
The long-term forecast from Environment Canada calls for sub-zero temperatures all next week with light snow. Things should warm up after that, however, but only barely, with daytime temperatures around the freezing mark.
