Warmer conditions return to Calgary following frigid weekend


From where we ended last week to where we start today, it feels like a completely different forecast. A pal on the hockey team asked me to change the weather (which is somewhat of a common occurrence – I don't mind!) and so I snapped my fingers and said "sure, I’ll get rid of the cold for you."

I think it worked?

Light flurries are still coming down, visibility's a minor issue, and our high today is a single-digit negative, as a west-wind setup aloft pushes us back toward normalcy.

Oh, and for those going "vortex shmortex," this map here is mostly extreme cold warnings.

Temperatures will remain somewhat composed for a few days, with some stronger west wind expected this evening, relative to today – this will generate an uptrend that pushes us closer to zero.

It won't be entirely roses – we’ll watch for a dip overnight Thursday as a system rolls through (as part of what will likely be a snowfall-warned region cutting east across the Peace River Valley), but westerlies are never far off. Out to the weekend, our forecast is back above zero.
