Deep Freeze to continue through next weekend..
There's no end in sight to the current deep freeze that has settled over Southern Manitoba. Daily highs in the minus 20s and lows in the minus 30s (even close to -40 at times) will persist through the week into next weekend. The good news is that wind speeds will be light over the next couple of days so wind chills won't be a problem. However winds are expected to pick up by Wednesday and Thursday which will likely produce dangerous wind chill values again. (Note that official wind chills are calculated with a wind speed of at least 13 km/h) Little change in the below normal temperature pattern is seen through next weekend into next week. So make the best it... or if you're lucky enough, a good time to get out of town!
