If you think it’s getting a little chilly out now, just wait until later this week.
Environment Canada pegs this Thursday, January 17 at a daytime temperature of around -14°C, and The Weather Network goes even further by stating that it will feel like a chilly -19°C.

Now, we know that most Calgarians are tough and hardy Canadians through and through that balk at anything warmer than -43°C — the coldest that it had ever been in Calgary, dating way back to the winter of 1943 — but even they should think about putting on an extra pair of socks this week.
The Chinook that is currently warming our weather makes its departure Monday night, when the temperature will drop from a daytime high of 6°C down to -7°C.
Tuesday follows up with a 30% chance of snowfall, and an even colder night of -11°C.
That trend only continues throughout the rest of the week, with Thursday hitting -14°C and Friday night dropping down to -19°C (and featuring another 30% chance of snow, as the cherry on top).
Things get a little warmer (if you can call it that) this weekend with -7°C and -6°C on Saturday and Sunday, respectively, but we’d still recommend taking your trusty pair of mittens with you, just in case.
