A cold spell is on its way with freezing temperatures and chance of snow

It may come as a surprise to absolutely no one in Calgary that the closer we get to December, the colder this city is going to get.

While we saw a good few inches of snowfall hit YYC over this past weekend, more is evidently on its way thanks to freezing temperatures, according to Environment Canada.

But before we get to all of that, we’ll actually enjoy a few relatively mild days of 6°C highs, 0°C lows, and sunny skies for Monday through Thursday — though there is a chance of rain on Tuesday night.

The real cold comes around starting on Friday, with daytime temperatures hovering around -1°C and the night dropping to -6°C.

Saturday isn’t expected to be any warmer, with a high (if you can call it that) of -3°C, a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day, and temperatures plummeting to -9°C that night.

It’s not nearly the coldest that Calgary has ever seen, but it is a sign of what’s to come as we make our way into December.

Sunday will follow up with a chance of snowfall during the day, courtesy of a -5°C average and a 30% chance of precipitation.

So just be sure to enjoy that hot and toasty 6°C we’ll be seeing the start of the week while you still can, Calgary, because a wintery weekend is coming.
