The most concerning weather feature today and Monday will be the very cold temperatures and wind chills. By Monday morning, the lows would be nine degrees, although wind chills could make it feel like -10 degrees. Things are expected to chill mid-week on Wednesday but by Saturday forecasters are calling for a high of 6 C - PLUS SIX. High temperatures are likely to only top out in the middle teens, around 17° here in the metro. Monday night will be nearly as cold. This is a far cry from the -50°C to -60°C wind chill values of the past few days.
Plan on a mix of rain and snow showers Wednesday.
