07 January, 2018

This means that wind chills will range between -5° and -25° during this time. NW winds at 15 to 25 miles per hour will push the wind chill to near and below zero.

Environment Canada is advising people to check on older family, friends and neighbours, and to keep pets inside.

"These wind chills can cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin", the NWS advisory said.

The record low of -1 for Sunday should be shattered in Springfield. With a predominately westerly wind, any roads that run north to south will likely see reduced visibility from blowing snow and some snow back on the road ways that have already been cleared.

It looks like we will snap our two-week streak of temps below freezing on Monday-but barely with highs only hitting around 32. Tuesday will get a bit milder, then colder air will descend for Tuesday night and Wednesday-but nothing insane.
