Before leaving the house this morning, I decided that I should check the temperature to get an idea of what to wear for the rest of the day. When I pulled up the forecast, I was shocked to see a low of -1 ºC from Friday through Sunday. That’s a huge drop considering Wednesday’s low is 12 ºC. “Maybe it’s a poor estimate”, I thought to myself.
Later during the evening, I received a text message with the following:
Very cold weather valid as of Thursday night Jan 1.
A sudden and quick drop in temperatures is expected this Thursday evening when strong NW winds will prevail. It will be much colder on Friday and Saturday. With windy conditions and extremly low humidity, the weather will feel bitterly cold. Daytime highs won’t exceed 9 ºC or 10 ºC and nighttime lows will be blew 0 ºC.
The worst of the scenerio should last to Sunday but the weather after Sunday will still feel cold. Please take necessary precausions for this weekend.
