Cold front brings flurries to Calgary
With the low streaking across the north, a weakened cold front will pass by us today. This should bring gusts to the 40 km/h range, and will drop some snow on us. A few forecast models are holding out at totals from four to seven centimetres for Calgary, but there's a resounding majority – and my opinion on the matter – settling in around two centimetres. Communities west of the Deerfoot Trail will likely see more than communities to the east.
After the north wind passes, we're right into a ridge of high pressure. The Wednesday outlook is northwesterly and so will be seasonal. Then, Pacific inflow to the BC interior that generates a chinook arch on Thursday. Ditto Friday. These days will perhaps bother the pressure-sensitive, as the west wind and pressure adjust accordingly.
