Slight Reprieve from Cold Snap on the Way

Slight Reprieve from Cold Snap on the Way

The sun rises over freshly-fallen snow in Winnipeg on Thursday morning as seen from St. James. It was a bitter start to the day, feeling like -31°C with the wind chill. Today isn't shaping up to be as chilly as yesterday, and the weekend will be even warmer. Environment Canada is calling for a high of -12°C today under sunny skies with increased cloudiness as the afternoon progresses. The wind won't be too much of a factor, as gusts are said to only get up to 20 km/h from the south. On Saturday, a high of -7°C is in store, while Sunday is forecast to bring a 60 percent chance of flurries and a high of -1°C. (MARC EVANS / CHRISD.CA)
