Nov 5 2020, 9:01 am

Pull out those parkas, because it’s going to be a chilly weekend here in Calgary.

The Weather Network’s weekend forecast is predicting some significant snowfall to hit YYC over the next few days, burying the green grass and unsalted sidewalks we’ve been enjoying during the recent warm spell.

According to the forecast, the first sign of snowfall will be seen Friday night, with scattered flurries in the evening, flurries overnight, and full-blown snowfall come Saturday morning.

As expected, the temperatures are also looking to plummet below freezing by Friday night, and Saturday afternoon will only warm up to a high of -2°C that feels more like -7°C.

Sunday will mark the coldest day of the weekend, however, with a high of -7°C that hits the skin a bit more like -15°C.

Like we said, get those parkas ready.

Around 7 to 9 cm of snow could fall during this weekend, with around 1 cm on Friday, around 5 cm on Saturday, and 1 to 3 cm on Sunday.

Whether or not this snow will stick around for good is anyone’s guess, but we’re not holding our breath to see the green grass in Calgary again any time soon.
