Tuesday morning temperatures at the Edmonton Blatchford station measured -6.0 C with 4 km/h winds out of the south, southwest with a wind chill of -8.
With all this warm weather we’re having snow banks are melting onto sidewalks and turning them into skating rinks overnight.
Going for a walk around the block is a great way to test the grips on your shoes. For every clear sheet of concrete there’s another giant patch of ice just waiting to trip you up — literally. Even my dogs are slipping and sliding all over the darn place. They can’t waddle like a penguin like you or I can. Remember, sidewalk salt is totally a thing and it works great too. Maybe give it a try, who knows.
The warm weather is sticking around as forecasters are calling for a high of 5 C today. Winds are expected to pick up, gusting to 20-40 km/h, starting around 11 a.m.. Looks like it’s only going to get warmer and sunnier in the days ahead with a high of 10 C Friday! Maybe March isn’t so bad after all…..
Does Lisa need a coat (and mittens)?
I’ve never said this out loud before but I hate mittens. Give me a good pair of gloves any day. Every try to zip up your coat wearing mittens? It’s impossible.
