If this isn’t the best example of how fickle the Calgary weather can be, we don’t know what it is.
The upcoming December weekend is relatively mild compared to some of the actual freezes we’ve had around this time of year in the past, but it’s also a lot more confusing.
According to The Weather Network, sunny skies and above-average temperatures as well as a snowfall probability of up to 3 cm are expected in the next three days.
The weekend begins on Friday with mostly sunny skies and a maximum value of 3 ° C. The night low only reaches -1 ° C and makes way for a Saturday with 4 ° C.
This Saturday sky will be littered with a mixture of sun and clouds and a cool night at 0 ° C.
Sunday is the real question mark as the weather network sets a maximum of 6 ° C, which feels like 3 ° C, although there is also a 40% probability of precipitation of 1 to 3 cm of snowfall.
Whether the dusting will continue for the next five days to give Calgary a truly white Christmas is unclear, but with temperatures dropping for the coming week we’d say there is a pretty good chance.
