Warmer days could be on the way to Calgary by this weekend

It’s not going to be suntanning and floating down the Bow kind of weather, by any means, but it will get somewhat warmer in Calgary by this weekend.

The Weather Network’s seven day forecast is calling for a gradual end to the bitter cold temperatures we’ve been seeing throughout the past weekend, though we’ll have to go through a few more frigid days before we can get there.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday are all sitting firmly in the -20s with lows that break into even the -30s — but Saturday comes through with a slightly less frozen forecast.

January 18 will see a high of -17°C and a low of just -22°C, paving the way for warmer days down the line.

Sunday, January 19 brings the temperature back to somewhat reasonable numbers with a high of -11°C and a low of -14°C, though it isn’t until Monday, January 20 that we get anywhere close to 0°C.

Still, it’s nice to know that about a week from now will see a sunny high of -2°C and five hours of sunshine — even if we have to go through about half a dozen frozen days in Dante’s Ninth Circle just to get there.

Keep an eye out for Extreme Cold warnings from Environment Canada as we head into one of the coldest weeks of the year, and be sure to stay warm (or at least as not-cold as you can) out there, Calgary.
