Thursday is the day we will see the bulk of the snowfall, with five to 10 centimetres of snow expected in Calgary.

Snow should be pretty consistent throughout the day for Calgary and the foothills.

The snow will be more intermittent for Friday afternoon and the weekend.

The next few days our daytime high in Calgary will struggle to get just above freezing.

We have the potential to pick up another couple of centimetres of snow Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as well as some rain mixed in as temperatures climb a little on the weekend.

Next week we will be back to significantly warmer temperatures and sunshine.
