Calgary with a strong chance to break 132-year temperature record Wednesday

AFTERNOON UPDATE: As of 2:00 P.M., Calgary was at 26.3 C - at 3:00 P.M., we popped to 27.5 C. We're well on our way. Otherwise, our temperatures moving into the weekend, we're pretty much staying the course from the morning edition. The push continues... we're 1.4 C from tying the record.

MORNING EDITION: I say we do it.

I think it'll be close, but 1890's record high for Sept. 28 of 28.9 C stands to fall today, if barely.

Westerly gusts are in the upper 20s to low 30s, and our cloud profile is similar to Tuesday, with only a few particularly cloudy periods. Couple in the position of our high pressure ridge above, and there's a solid chance we break this record shortly after 4 p.m.  If we fail to reach the mark, my guess is we do so to within a half a degree.

Looking beyond, the cloud has really poured on for Thursday and Friday once again, with an added factor of northern wind now possible Friday. It'll nudge the temperature down, slightly, but that's about the worst of it.

As the constant has been, the weekend warms once again. The modeling out through mid-October at this point still doesn't have a negative temperature for us to look at on the low end. It's going to be a warm start.
