Thanks to a clipper system moving in tonight, we'll likely just creep up above -20°C late this afternoon or this evening. This clipper system will bring some snow overnight tonight and tomorrow morning with 1-2 cm possible, AT MOST. Not a major system by any means and conditions are not ideal for a heavy snowfall. However, another cold front passes midday tomorrow and that will usher in strong winds of 30 to 40 km/h which will create blowing and drifting snow on highways. Travel unrecommended once again tomorrow afternoon as a result.
Extremely cold air, some of the coldest so far this winter, will be ushered in Friday night. Lows on Saturday morning will likely resemble those of this morning's, albeit it may even get a couple degrees colder. Lows between -35 and -38°C in the Winnipeg area not out of the question. Temperatures will struggle to rise on Saturday with highs likely only in the mid -20's. We have a very good chance at breaking a record low maximum for the day considering the old record low maximum is -22.2°C in 1972.
Unfortunately, the cold is expected to dominate for at least the next 2 weeks. There will likely be some brief warmups, but in general cold is expected to win out.
February summary to come this evening or tomorrow, and the winter summary will be posted on Saturday. I have gathered some interesting stats for the winter summary so be sure to come visit!
*****Correction: Originally I stated in this post that the all-time record low maximum in March was -25.0°C on March 9, 1948. However, I made a mistake, the record is actually -26.7°C on March 7, 1880.
