Warm, moist Pacific air came into Alberta Thursday, but remained aloft. It generated snow in many parts of the province. That warm air will begin to descend the eastern slopes of the Rockies on Friday. As it does, it will dry out, and we'll warm up. You may see a chinook arch first thing Friday morning, but it will still be cold. It will take most of the day for the lighter warm air to push aside the heavier, denser cold air. So, you can expect it to slowly warm up as the day goes on. Much warmer weather is on the way for the weekend.
