Don’t let the big yellow shine sprites on the forecast below fool you — it may be a sunny weekend, but it’s going to be a windy one, too! Today, for example? Oh, well the high will be a pleasant -1 C, but unfortunately we’ll also have a 15 km/h wind that will bring the wind chill down to a very unpleasant -21 throughout the day. The overnight will be a low of -7 C and a wind chill of -11. Saturday is going to be much of the same, a high of 3 C but a heavy wind that will bring the wind chill to -12.
