Calgary is set to see a 14°C temperature shift this week

Feb 26 2019, 11:19 pm

Good news: Calgary is actually getting a little warmer, and will see a high of -1°C on Wednesday!

Bad news: Friday will plunge us right back into the chilly depths of the wintery abyss from whence we came.

… But Thursday’s actually going to be quite bearable as well, so there’s that, at least.

Along with a 30% chance of flurries, Wednesday will see that aforementioned high of -1°C (so close to being above freezing) and a low of just -14°C, according to the weekly forecast from Environment Canada.

Thursday follows suit with a sunny -5°C day, but before you go thinking you’ll enjoy a mild weekend, know that the gods of winter have other plans for the good people of YYC.

Friday is expected to be nothing but sunshine devoid of all warmth, as the daytime high will be at a bone-chilling -19°C. The night will drop down even lower to -28°C, while Saturday will be much of the same with another -19°C day.

There is some hope for the start of March, however, as Sunday follows up with a slightly warmer -12°C, and we’ll be starting our week on Monday with -9°C and sunshine.

If the Weather Network’s long-term spring forecast is anything to be believed, we can look forward to some actual warmth on the tail end of March — though our hopes are about as high as the temperature right now, if we’re being honest.

Here’s hoping, anyway!
