Winds will diminish today as skies remain cloudy with a few flurries. Temperatures will gain maybe a degree or two but not much more before dropping to -18C tonight. The weekend will be cloudy with a few flurries or snow showers at times and chilly. If your travels take you anywhere around the Great Lakes be advised there is lots of snow squall activity. The squalls have been strong where they have occurred creating sudden white out conditions on Interstates 81 and 90 as well as the 401. Yesterday a squall in Detroit on I-75 resulted in a massive pile up and three fatalities. Drive with caution, be safe.
