Calgary to experience above-normal conditions through the weeekend

CALGARY — Another day, another opportunity to get outside. If those plans start up this morning, the greatest threat you’ll face is once again from overnight freezing!

The ridge of high pressure that’s packed full of heat is continuing to roll off of the Pacific. Today, the jet is going to continue south of Calgary, with a rise into our region from the southwest tomorrow, as the high pressure ridge sets its entry region overtop of us.

The BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front): It’s going to be warm. It’s going to stay warm.

A weak disturbance will shift through on Saturday afternoon, which may trigger showers and heavier wind for a period, as our temperature jaunts into the five-day forecast’s coolest low. We may even experience a brief wave of flurries, but melting temperatures are right on trend for Sunday.

Here’s the five-day forecast:

Today:

  • Mainly sunny
  • Daytime high: 9 C
  • Evening: some cloud, low -1 C

Thursday:

  • Mainly sunny
  • Daytime high: 11 C
  • Evening: some cloud, low -1 C

Friday:
