The string of cold windy weather will be over soon for Calgarians as Environment Canada is predicting that the city will see highs of 11 degrees by New Year’s Day.

This is great news for anyone wanting to take part in the annual Calgary Polar Bear Dip.

After a few more days below zero degrees, temperatures in Calgary are expected to rise above the freezing point on New Year’s Eve. This is welcome news to revellers wanting to take in one of the many fireworks displays taking place on midnight.
