Clearing skies and mild

The weather, currently.

A quiet start to the new month... initially, more on that in a moment. Variable cloudiness for tomorrow morning with a wake-up temperature near -1°C, feeling like -6°C. Overall a decent day ahead, we will get some sunny breaks through the lunch hour and then a clearing trend for the afternoon. The high 3°C degrees. The wind will be light from the NW and the UV index 4 or moderate.

Thursday night: scattered clouds with a low of -6°C.

Side Note: there is another major storm on the way. Although things could change, at the moment a major snow event arriving late day Friday into Saturday morning. There could be bands of heavy snow and strong winds making travel tricky. I will keep you posted. —Anwar Knight
