Meteorological fall ends as it began – warm!
Our 500 mb conditions won't do a lot over the next few days, as a ridge of high pressure has bulwarked them into our region for a while longer. We're facing another glut of west wind, as a consequence.
Tomorrow, gusts in the 50s are possible, though the 40s are more likely. We'll take a second run at double digits.
So ends our meteorological fall. At a single glance, November perhaps had all of two days that fell below seasonal. Maybe even just the one. I’ll have a better look at that tonight on CTV Calgary News at 5 and 6. UPDATE: This is still true.
It would make sense to weave the November thread into one day in December, right?
How about half a day, instead?
Early, strong gusts on Dec. 1 could pile us toward the mid-teens before sunrise. It won’t last, though; Another Alberta clipper is crossing the Rockies, forming in the central region and making a bee-line dive for Lake Superior. We'll face easterly wind when it arrives, and the preliminary look is for two to four millimetres of rain. Overnight freezing becomes a hazard, along with a shot for snow.

This lovely photo came through via Twitter this weekend, and she's absolutely right – this is not an everyday occurrence!
And Carrie jumped in, too, showing a fair-sized flock of geese in Airdrie.
