It’s another full week of flurries, which, given that the temperature will stay near or above 0 C all week, means we’re going to have some grimy roads for the next while.

Monday will be one worth hating, with a high of -1 C and a 30 per cent chance of flurries throughout the day blown in by 40 km/h winds, with a wind chill of -7. Tuesday will be much the same, a 30 per cent chance of flurries with 15 km/h winds and a high of 4 C. Wednesday will be a small reprieved, the clouds parting to give us a high of 11 C and hopefully clearing out some of the sleet and muck.
