Highs of 19°C in the forecast for Calgary this weekend

May 11 2020, 10:17 am

This most-recent cold spell is almost over.

While it may feel like -1°C right now, according to The Weather Network, temperatures are apparently going to skyrocket up into the high teens throughout this week and well into the long weekend.

The Weather Network’s seven-day forecast finds that Tuesday will act as a sort of transition day between this chilly (and at times snowy) past weekend and the bright and sunny spring week ahead.

At a high of just 9°C that feels like 6°C and just two hours of sunshine, we wouldn’t break out the sun tanning chairs just yet, though.

Wednesday follows up with a modest high of 15°C and a full 11 hours of sunshine, while Thursday ups the ante even higher to 18°C.

Thursday also brings the first hint of rain, however, with around 1 mm.

Friday cools down to around 15°C, but leads into the warmest day of the week, when Saturday is set to see highs of 19°C and 10 hours of sunshine.

That’s going the be the day to plan your physically distanced walks or trips into Alberta’s newly reopened provincial parks, because Sunday will be the rainiest of the week.

A 40% chance of precipitation could see around 2 to 4 cm, according to The Weather Network’s forecast, though a high of 16°C and four hours of sun doesn’t write this day off completely.

Next Monday is expected to cool down to just 13°C with less than 1 mm of rain — not quite the sunny summer weather we’ve all been hoping for, but it’s still miles above the chill we just endured.
