Temperature swing and blasts of precipitation: This is your Edmonton forecast

EDMONTON — Rather than settling into a prolonged warm or cold spell, we’re in for some big swings in temperature this week.

Daytime highs ranging from just above zero to the -10 range and mornings ranging from -7 to -17.

 

We’re leaning towards the milder side of that scale today.

Cloudy with a few sunny breaks and areas with fog patches this morning should be done with that by mid-morning.

Temperatures climbing to around -4 and then REALLY warming up tomorrow.

 

A warm front pushes across central and northern Alberta early Tuesday.

We’ll have some snow along that front with the possibility of 1 or 2 cm in the Edmonton region early in the morning.

That snow pushes into northern Alberta by mid-to-late morning.

Heaviest snow will likely be in NW Alberta with 5 to 10 cm possible by the end of the day Tuesday.

 

Behind the warm front, temperatures jump to a high near or slightly above zero Edmonton and surrounding areas.

But it won’t last.  

We’ll cool slightly Wednesday and then drop to a high near -10 with a good chance of snow on Thursday.
