Wind Chills to Dip in -30's Monday Morning Across Prairies



Monday Dec 6th


Well, it was bound to happen at some point right? An area of high pressure, currently over Alaska, will move across the Prairie Provinces today into Monday and bring with it Arctic air. This will bring temperatures down in the -20's C.
