Residents are enjoying the warm weather in the region. For early January, today’s high of -2 doesn’t offer too much for residents to complain about.
Environment Canada Meteorologist, Geoff Coulson, says that now is the time to enjoy the warm winter weather, as temperatures are set to drop again soon and the region could see some snow as early as today.
“We’re in the bit of a warm up now, but with the approach of a system coming in from the American southwest, it could give some snow to the area. In the wake of that system though, things do start to get cold again for the end of the work week and into the weekend. Daytime highs for Thursday and Friday only expected to reach only -17 or -18. Temperatures will be dipping down to somewhat colder-than-normal values, but it does look like by mid-month we’re going to bounce back again temperature-wise. This particular cold snap isn’t expected to last long,” he said.
Tomorrow is forecasted to be a high of -18, and Friday is set to hit a high of -17. The sun is set to come out over the weekend. Saturday is forecasted to be a high of -22, with Sunday expected to reach a high of -20.
