Bundle up! Manitoba is expected to get frosty on Saturday, with Winnipeg feeling like –40 outside with the windchill.

Despite the cold, the sun is expected to shine all day, with winds gusting up to 50 km/h late on Saturday morning.

Blowing snow is expected for Saturday night, which CBC meteorologist John Sauder said will amount to about two centimetres by the time it stops falling.

Temperatures are expected to stay around –16 C.

The cold is not expected to last, though.

On Valentine's Day, Winnipeggers can expect flurries with a temperature that is expected to rise to –6 C by the afternoon.
