Calgary will get its first real taste of winter this weekend.
While we might have seen a few flakes on Wednesday, Environment Canada is warning of gusts of snow in the area on the incoming cold front, and the weekend forecast doesn’t look much warmer.
According to The Weather Network, Calgarians can expect 1 to 3 cm of snowfall on Friday nights, followed by isolated thunderstorms and temperatures of -10 ° C that feel like -16 ° C overnight.
Saturday shows up with clear, sunny skies, but that doesn’t mean you can feel the sun shine on you as temperatures hit a high of just -4 ° C, which feels a little closer to -9 ° C .
On Saturday evening, there will be some clouds and a three point drop in temperature, hitting another low of -11 that feels like -16 ° C again overnight.
Sunday is expected to be similar as we will see some storms throughout the day with a total of around 3 cm of snowfall.
Temperatures hit a high of -4 ° C and a night low of -11 ° C, which, as you know, feels more like -16 ° C.
If you haven’t got this parka out of the closet yet, this weekend may be the right time to do it.
