Tuesday will be much the same with a high of - 3 C and a low of -14 C under a mix of sun and cloud and wind chills ranging from -14 C to - 5 C.

Wednesday, more clouds move in along with a 30 per cent chance of flurries, with a high of -4 C and a low of -12 C

Thursday will be a mix of sun and cloud with a high of 1 C and a low of -10 C.

Friday’s weather will be similar, with mostly sunny skies, a high of 0 C and a low of -10 C.

The beginning of March will see temperatures climb above zero, but not by much, with Saturday and Sunday reaching 1 C under a mix of sun and clouds.
