It’s. Finally. Happening.
After what has felt like an eternity toiling in the depths of winter (but has really been just over a month), Calgary is finally expected to see not just above freezing temperatures, but actual warmth — and soon.
According to Environment Canada’s seven-day forecast, next Monday will crank the heat up to a high of 12°C and feature stunningly sunny skies.
The cold snap will technically be broken a few days earlier on Saturday when we’ll start seeing temperatures of 1°C during the day and -10°C at night, followed by a similar showing from Sunday.
Whether or not a Chinook is on its way remains to be seen, but an 11 degree jump between Sunday and Monday is definitely a hint of what’s to come.
At this point, we’ll gladly take the migraines if it means thawing out our frozen city.
Tuesday cools off slightly to a high of 9°C, but we’re just happy to see the minus sign disappear from at least a part of the forecast.
Here’s hoping that it stays that way in the weeks to come…. but if we know anything about the weather in Calgary, it’s safe to say that we’ll likely see a few more snowfalls before summer truly arrives.
Just one more reason to live it up outside this Monday as best as you can!
