CALGARY -- Our forecast today will again garner a double-digit high. I was shaky on that potential yesterday, but it's looking reasonably certain now.

High pressure will be the dominant facet in our outlook, with southern wind driving 20 km/h sustained values for a good chunk of the day. That wind originates in communities that will potentially reach 15C to 16 C today!

Tomorrow, that high-pressure ridge begins pushing along. The southwest-to-northeast track of our upper air will guide a good chunk of snow into parts of the B.C. interior, and will also offer showers in Banff. There's a slight chance those showers cascade our way but rainfall totals would be minimal.

Thereafter, we're in a "neutral region." There won't be any elements cranking the heat up, nor any conditions dropping us down. We'll skew toward whatever's natural, based on how much sunlight we get. That means we'll gradually start sinking back to normal, without any major drops in the immediate outlook.
