Good morning:

It's a cool -2 Celsius in St. John's this morning, with an expected high temperature today of 1, with some cloudy periods.

Starting tonight and into the next three days, Environment Canada is forecasting some drizzle and rain showers. That will, hopefully, melt some of the snow banks.

But on Sunday, snow is in the forecast again.

Here's a look at the Environment Canada weather graphic for the St. John's-metro region and more detailed text version of the forecast.

[Comment From Russell from GlasgowRussell from Glasgow: ] 
has there been any outcome from the inquiry about the power outages?
Tuesday January 14, 2014 8:05 Russell from Glasgow

I just received this comment from Russell in Glasgow, Scotland.

These inquiries usually take some time and the value of an independent inquiry for government in addition to one by the Public Utilities Board has been questioned.
