“Winter isn’t quite done with us just yet. We are expecting temperatures to be anywhere from 10 to 15 degrees above normal for the next few days, looking at some of the daytime highs over the weekend, we are expecting highs of minus 10 or minus 12 throughout Saturday and Sunday.”

“Winter is still very much lingering over very much over the province at least through early next week and then we’ll start to see temperatures moderating towards mid-next week and into next weekend.”
