For Wednesday night, light easterly outflow winds will result in windchill values near -10°C – 15°C.

There’s also a chance of light flurries this evening as a weak weather system moves across the south coast. No snowfall accumulation is expected.

Temperatures should start to warm up sometime Thursday.
