The Weather Network’s seven-day forecast is showing a brief trip north of freezing this Friday and Saturday, reaching scorching highs of 2°C and 1°C, respectively.
This comes after a Wednesday and Thursday featuring a mix of sun and clouds and highs of just -6°C and 0°C, though those will feel a bit closer to -7°C and -2°C.
Not to mention a chance of snow for Tuesday night that we’ll be contending with alongside a low of -11°C.
The last bit of snowfall we’ll be seeing this week will come on Saturday, if it does at all, with a 30% chance of around 1 cm falling.
The start of next week is when the real winter begins, with 2 to 4 cm of snow falling on Tuesday.
Barring a seriously powerful Chinook, it looks like Calgary will be covered in the white stuff from now until next spring.
Parkas on, people, because it’s going to be a long winter.
