Snow, freezing temperatures on way to Calgary this weekend

A bit of snow is heading to Calgary this weekend.

The Weather Network’s weekend forecast is showing the Canadian city’s return to true form as far as the weather is concerned with snowy skies and plummeting temperatures.

Compared to the balmy days we saw just a week ago, the next few days will feel like winter has returned with a vengeance (even though it’s technically still fall until December 21).

Friday kicks things off with a cloudy high of -6°C that feels a little more like -12°C. No snow is expected, yet, but you’ll definitely want to pull the parka out of the closet.

Saturday actually manages to warm things up a little bit with sunny skies and a high of -2°C that feels like -6°C, though around 1 cm of snow is expected to fall that night.

Sunday is the real freezer of the weekend, with a high of -8°C that feels like -13°C bringing another 1 cm when all is said and done.

It’s not quite the painful-to-be-outside kind of cold that Calgary often sees throughout the winter, but we very much doubt that we’ll be back to double-digit weather (on the positive side of zero) any time soon.
