Much colder air, snow and strong northwest winds arrive today. The day will start with mostly cloudy skies, and then flurries start before noon. The northwest winds will increase throughout the day and reach sustained values over 30km/h with gusts over 60km/h. The winds weaken a bit this evening as the flurries come to an end.
Tomorrow will be even colder as temperatures struggle to reach the freezing mark. The northwesterly wind will continue through the day and help cause windchill values well below zero and bring more light snow to the region. There should be a mix of sun and clouds, and the chance of a few flurries still exists.
Sunshine returns to the region on Saturday with clouds moving in during the afternoon. Daytime highs climbing back to near +10°C.
The sunshine returns Sunday by noon, with temperatures climbing to near +7°C - which is normal for mid-April.
Monday brings a risk for a large winter storm to hit the region. Strong winds arrive to push temperatures back down to near the freezing mark. We might see brief rain to start the day, but then snow is in the current forecast for the afternoon. Weather models suggest 10-20cm of snow by Tuesday morning, but that's still several days away, and things are likely to change between now and then.
