Edmonton weather for Feb 18: Warming trend rolls on

EDMONTON — Temperatures will hit another milestone in Edmonton today.

We had our first single-digit day since Feb. 1 yesterday.

 

Today…we get our first day above -5 since Jan. 22 (almost exactly four weeks ago)!

Morning sun will give way to clouds and breezy conditions this afternoon.

So, our high of -3 in Edmonton WILL come with a bit of a wind chill.

 

That wind will die down for Friday and temperatures are forecast to be just slightly above zero.

If we get to +1, it’ll be our first day above freezing since Jan. 20.

 

The weekend certainly looks like it’ll have some above-zero temperatures, especially Sunday.

Saturday should be a degree or two above and Sunday will likely wind up in the 5 or 6 degree range.

 

The mild weather sticks around right through into early next week.
