Slowly but surely, Calgary is starting to warm back up.
While we may have seen an Environment Canada extreme cold warning as recently as Monday morning and are currently facing temperatures as low as -16°C, there is some hope on the horizon for those who, you know, actually like to feel the warmth of the sun every now and then.

Environment Canada’s seven-day weather forecast for the City of Calgary shows a steady rise in temperature throughout the week, with Thursday, March 7 marking the first time in over a month that YYC will see a day above freezing.
Friday and Saturday will be much the same, sitting at a still-technically-cold 1°C throughout the day and dropping down to a reasonable -9°C and -6°C throughout the night, respectively.
Sunday is when the real shift comes, living up to its name by bringing the sunshine and a high of 5°C.
It’s no break-out-the-shorts-and-head-to-the-beach type weather (yet), but it is a glorious hint of what’s to come as we crawl our way out of one of the coldest winters Calgary has ever seen.
Who knows, we may even be blessed by a chinook sometime this month.
Fingers crossed, people.
