Andrew Pratt clears snow from his drive
Despite blustery snow conditions on Thursday morning, the weekend is expected to be quite a bit nicer.
“You’re going to actually see some nice weather. We’re not calling for any misery, just sunshine with maybe the odd cloud,” said David Phillips, senior climatologist at Environment Canada. “There will be no issues, no weather to beat you up or to get in the way or to stop traffic and things like this.”
He said Friday weather is likely to be cold, three to four degrees colder than normal, but he said winds wouldn’t be a problem and the snow will “stay put.” Visibility is also expected to be restored.
He said Saturday has a forecasted high of -3 Celsius and a low of -14 Celsius in the morning. That is about four degrees warmer than normal for the low and five degrees warmer than normal for the high. He said on Sunday, temperatures are expected to be a little warmer than normal in the morning and normal in the afternoon.
However he said going into next week temperatures are expected to be a bit colder than normal. Tuesday’s forecasted high is -15 Celsius.
