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.
Temperatures will reach a high of -4°C and an overnight low of -11°C that, what do you know, feels more like -16°C.
