However, temperatures will dip lightly below normal in a large area centered around Baker Lake in Nunavut’s Kivalliq region..
More precipitation is forecast to fall across the Baffin region into the Kitikmeot region, and in areas of the Hudson and Ungava bays of Nunavik.
In Iqaluit, temperatures will stay near normal, with an average high of -1.4 C and a low of -7.4 C, and 115.6 mm of precipitation in the forecast.
