Temperatures expected to climb above zero next week

Milder temperatures are in the forecast — could this be a sign of an early spring?

Warmer temperatures are slowly creeping into Ottawa's forecast in the week ahead.

Environment Canada forecasts that Ottawa will get two days of temperatures above zero, with the other days hovering close to the zero mark.

Starting Saturday, February 20, there will be a 30 per cent chance of flurries in the morning and afternoon, but a high of -4 C during the day. The windchill, however, could make it feel more like -18 C in the morning and -9 C in the afternoon.

Come nighttime, the 30 per cent chance of flurries will continue but the temperature will drop to a chilly -16 C — which is forecasted to be the coldest night of the week.

You can’t spell Sunday with out the sun this weekend with a high of -2 C. The night will come with periods of snow and a low of -9 C.

The periods of snow will continue into Monday with a high of -1 C. Overnight will see a slight dip in temperatures with a low of -4 C, but flurries are still expected to continue.

Tuesday is when things start its climb above zero with a high of 2 C — however, with it will come snow or rain. The night will slip to a tolerable -3 C with cloudy skies.

The above zero trend continues into Wednesday with a high of 1 C, but a 40 per cent chance of flurries is expected. The weather agency predicts a low of -8 C during the night and cloudy skies.
