Calgary's warm weather hiccups Tuesday

AFTERNOON UPDATE: I have had the blinders on a bit too much chatting about the potential for flurries (still ther, but barely, FYI) Monday evening that I've completely neglected to discuss the wind; with our air temperature expected to drop from a high of 23 C to a low of 3 C, we can anticipate overnight wind gusts out of the northwest clocking at 60 kilometres per hour, with some gust potential striking to the eighty kilometre per hour range.

It's a fine thing to have Wednesday posted in the forecast below; after just a single day beneath a seasonal normal, we're right back at it again with warmth.

MORNING EDITION: Our forecast from yesterday is holding steady. The shift from last night's forecast models to today's is solely in the precipitation type expected late Monday and early Tuesday.

It's a tricky thing, predicting up to five days out; however, the line of models from that distance did a pretty solid job. Our low temperature outlook for Tuesday has improved. Not enough to negate flurries, but enough to challenge their development. There is a trade-off, however; now, we have some potential to see up to 10 millimetres of rain. Not a big deal; most of this is falling overnight from Monday to Tuesday. With temperatures as low as 3 C, there's the risk of fog overnight there.

You might be thinking 'It's Friday, isn't there anything to report for the weekend?'.

Not really. Fair weather dominates the forecast, here.

Here is Canada's unseasonably mild December forecast

December is predicted to be unseasonably mild across Canada, thanks to a "moderate-to-strong" El Nino and human-caused warming. Warming and precipitation trends will be stronger in some parts of the country than others, and severe weather is still possible, meteorologists say.
