While Calgary may have just been blessed with a miraculous snowfall, the temperature is actually expected to heat up by Saturday according to Environment Canada, with a high of 8°C.

But if you’re worried about that picturesque snow all melting by the new year, you’ve really got nothing to worry about. Just two days after this warm Saturday, Monday will drop down to a high (if you can call it that) of -10°C — meaning that in just over 48 hours Calgary will see a temperature shift of 18°C.

Sure, we’re used to chinooks, but this is just getting out of hand…
