If you factor in winds of around 16 km / h, the wind chill drops to almost 10 degrees this morning and should be 30 degrees this afternoon.

It will likely take all weekend to clean up damage to roads and places like Mon Wharf.

Corporations and private homes that have taken water in basements and experienced minor flooding will take longer to get things back to normal.

The good news is that it looks like we’re going to see a rain gap, with our next “real” chance of rain happening sometime next week.

At this point there is very little chance of precipitation for the next week.

It’s a bit of a surprise that our forecast looks dry as the arctic jet will plunge into our region.
