Sunday Weather: Chance of flurries and a temperature drop but Rideau Canal still closed

Dress in layers today, folks. According to Environment Canada the temperature will drop steadily all day long.

At 7:00 a.m. the early birds of Ottawa enjoyed a balmy -2 C.
By noon, the temperature is expected to fall to -5 C.
By 5:00 p.m. down to -9 C.
By 11:00 p.m. a frigid -15 C.

There is a chance of flurries today but only until about lunchtime. No major accumulation is expected. A steady northwest wind is blowing at 20 km per hour with gusts up to 40 km per hour throughout the day.

The Rideau Canal Skateway remains temporarily closed, thanks to the mild weather. The NCC said the mild weather had “eroded the quality of the ice surface and created hazardous conditions for skaters and the public,” and asks all to keep of the ice.

Monday’s high (and low) will be -10 C. And, Mondays being Mondays, several centimetres of snow are expected to make driving all that much more enjoyable.

Tuesday calls for a high of 3 C, with means Mother Nature hasn’t yet decided whether the expected precipitation will arrive in liquid or solid form.

Wednesday bring more of the same, with a  high of -1 C and 60 per cent chance of flurries.

Talk heart though, a wonderfully sunny stretch of weather is on the horizon. Thursday, Friday and Saturday look beautiful (but cold).

The sun won’t come out tomorrow, or the day after, or the day after that. But look for it, at first light on the (forth) day, at dawn.
