In addition to the snow and rain we're going to be seeing for most of the day, tonight’s forecast looks pretty bleak.

We're getting a low of -10°C overnight which would tie the all-time coldest temperature record from 1986. 

If you thought that was bad, I actually have some worse news. It's going to feel much colder out there tonight. We’re also expecting high winds, which means it's going to feel twice as cold as it actually is.
