The temperature in Calgary is like a box of chocolates: You never know what you’re gonna get.
Well, that’s not entirely true, because the good folks over at Environment Canada seem to have at least an idea of what this week’s weather will be looking like as we head further into the depths of December.
- Lake Louise fined $2.1 million for cutting down endangered trees
- Canmore Cave Tours hosting Christmas concerts 100 metres underground
- 3 people caught maple-handed with $20,000 worth of syrup
The snowfall that Calgary saw over the weekend will have a few solid days to ice over, according to Environment Canada’s seven-day forecast, with Monday through Thursday expecting to remain below freezing, reaching as low as -12°C on Wednesday night.
In true YYC fashion, however, the dials will then switch on over to (relative) warmth come Friday at a consistent 5°C both day and night, and Saturday will follow up with a scorching 12°C.
Keep the sunblock around for Sunday, because the last day of the weekend will bring nothing but more sunshine and a high of 9°C.
It remains to be seen exactly how much ice and snow will stick around until the weekend thaw, as Monday shows a 30% chance of snow throughout the day and a biting cold -11°C at night.
So just be sure to bundle up, stay cozy, and know that warmer days are on that horizon, Calgary!
