Warm(er) weather coming to Calgary by next week

Dec 13 2019, 2:14 pm

Calgary might feel like a frozen popsicle right now, but there is some semblance of hope on the horizon.

These below freezing days will soon make way for somewhat warmer days ahead, as next week will be seeing multiple days register at above freezing — if Environment Canada’s seven-day forecast is to be believed.

Tuesday, December 17, is expected to be a bright and sunny 6°, Wednesday will see a high of 5°C, and Thursday will again see 6°C — it’s not the hottest that YYC has ever been, but given that we’re currently looking at a high of -13°C, we’ll take what we can get.

Even nighttime temperatures will be relatively mild over the coming week, with lows of just 0°C.

If all works out, we may even start to see some of the snow thawing out in the days leading up to Christmas.

Calgary weather this week (Environment Canada)

Other than a 30% chance of flurries this Friday, the skies above the city will remain clear for the near-future, though we will be seeing some clouds on Saturday before sunny skies for the rest of the week.

This all might not seem like much cause for celebration now, but we’ll take it over the snowfall warnings and extreme cold alerts that the province has been seeing over the last month or two.

So be sure to get outside and enjoy the sunshine during this last week of fall, Calgary. Because who knows what winter will have in store for us…
