Saturday morning temperatures at the Edmonton Blatchford station measured -8 C with winds 15 km/h out of the south. The wind chill, minus 14, still.
Today we receive one of those magical winter days where we can kick the snow-dust up. (If you have that song in your head now, congratulations!) February leaves us with a gentlest of snowfalls, maybe two centimetres. Child’s play.
The sun is not expected to break through our icing-sugar clouds, a pleasant high in the -4 C range expected. We can wear this grey day like a cozy wool sweater. Abide.
More goodness follows Monday as we squint in the sunshine, aiming for a golden high of 8 C. Temperatures in that range should continue through week’s end as we kick our heels up, marching toward spring.
Today: Periods of snow, around two centimetres, wind becoming southwest 20 km/h in the afternoon. High -4 C with a wind chill of minus 15 in the morning but dropping to minus 10 in the afternoon.
Tonight: Periods of light snow ending in the evening, clearing. Wind southeast 20 km/h, becoming light in the evening. Temperature a steady -3 C. Wind chill minus 11 in the evening and minus six overnight.
