Oct 16 2020, 10:07 am

Calgary’s about to get its first true taste of winter this weekend.

While we may have seen a few flakes on Wednesday, the incoming cold front has Environment Canada warning about snow squalls in the area, and the weekend forecast isn’t looking all that much warmer.

According to The Weather Network, Calgarians can expect 1 to 3 cm of snowfall on Friday evening, followed by scattered flurries and temperatures of -10°C that feel like -16°C overnight.

Saturday shows up with clear, sunny skies, but that doesn’t mean that you’ll be able to feel the sun shining down on you, as temperatures will reach a high of just -4°C that feels a little closer to -9°C.

Saturday evening will see some clouds and a three point drop in temperatures, reaching another low of -11 that feels, again, like -16°C overnight.

Sunday is forecast to be much the same, as we will see a few flurries throughout the day totalling around 3 cm of snowfall.
