Good morning! It was a snowy start to the day, yet again, at -1 C with light snow as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 99 per cent humidity and 4 km/h winds from the north-northeast.

And we’ve got a snowfall warning currently in effect, with about five centimetres expected today with a high of 2 C and another 5 cm of snow overnight with temperatures hanging around 0 C. The skies are expected to clear up tomorrow, and we’ll get a short break from the precipitation, with clear skies overnight tomorrow and during the day on Thursday. Highs of 5 and 3 C and lows of -5 C over the next two days.
