WINNIPEG — The first official day of winter is on Wednesday, but this week won’t feel like it weather-wise.
After a weekend of brutally cold temperatures, Winnipeg and southern Manitoba is in for a reprieve to kick off the Christmas week.
An extreme cold warning was dropped on Sunday, setting the scene for a balmy few days to round out 2016.
Environment Canada says to expect a 30 percent chance of flurries today with a daytime high of -5°C — a far cry from the -27°C less than 24 hours earlier.
The next several days appear to be shaping up just as mild, with -3°C expected on Tuesday and single digit highs for the rest of the workweek.
