Gusty day as warming trend continues: This is your Edmonton forecast

EDMONTON — Areas just south of Edmonton are waking up to some flurries and light snow this morning.

Skies will clear in Edmonton by mid-to-late morning and we’re in for a sunny afternoon.

Temperatures will climb 3 or 4 degrees above zero.

That’s almost 15 degrees warmer than last Tuesday!

 

And that all SOUNDS good. BUT… the wind will be a big factor today.

 

Most of central and north-central Alberta will have gusts in the 50 to 60 km/h range through the afternoon and carrying into the early evening.

Wind should die down late tonight.

 

We get a warmer and calmer day Wednesday.  Still a bit breezy in the morning and then a high near 5 degrees, sun and light wind in the afternoon.

Thursday’s shaping up to be the warmest day of the week with a high in the 6 to 9 degree range.

After that, we start to cool heading into the Easter weekend.

Temperatures will be below zero for high on Saturday and right around zero Sunday.

We’ve also added a slight risk of flurries into the Sunday forecast.
