Calgary's forecast: 5 cm of snow and cool to start the week

Share

We're looking at light snow in parts of Calgary today, but don't expect much accumulation.

I mentioned that this isn't part of a larger low-pressure system Friday; that remains true. Instead, it's another polar ridge. Cold air is therefore circulating in, and we'll face a chilly start to the week on that account. The cold air mass will really hit sometime this evening, just past sunset – with it, expect a burst of wind for two hours or so; 50 to 60 kilometre per hour gusts are expected here, and with temperatures between -12 and -18 C expected for it, the wind chill will be bitter.

This pattern will continue tomorrow, though without the milder (relatively speaking) start your Monday features – it'll be a cold one Tuesday. While snowfall isn't expected to be particularly heavy at any point in the next 48 hours, we'll still amass five to six centimetres.

Then, we break into a brief seasonal pattern for the mid-to-late week, thanks to a rising ridge; a few great outdoor days will follow, if that toboggan is in need of use.
