Calgary coming close to a mid-week temperature record

AFTERNOON OUTLOOK: The day's shaped out as par for the course. high pressure is sitting pretty, and this cloud layer has been minimal. We'll rise up to mainly sunny and even warmer Tuesday, with the apex of that heat finally solidifying its flip; that'll come Wednesday. Still, we're making no guarantees of a record-breaker yet. 

Eyes are also on Hurricane Ian, bearing down in the Gulf of Mexico.

MORNING EDITION: You read that headline right – the high 20s! Certainly not unprecedented for this time of year, but we'll even find our way toward record-breaking territory:

  • Monday's record high: 30.0 C, set in 1952;
  • Tuesday's record high; 31.7 C, set in 1967; and,
  • Wednesday's record high: 28.9 C, set in 1890.

To be fair, I'm saying high 20s. It's really only Wednesday that’s going to come somewhat close. Still, it's a nice dream!

Summer-like temperatures will falter against a disturbance Thursday, which will drop our temperatures much closer to seasonal. The early look at wind gusts through this cycle push in the mid-40 km/h range.

What else could we expect on the other side of this but another boost above-seasonal? We have another warm weekend to look forward to. Enjoy!
