EDMONTON — Temperatures stayed above zero in Edmonton overnight.
It was 3 degrees at 3am!
We’ll cool slightly in the 5-8 o’clock hours (still right around or above zero) and then climb to about 5 degrees this afternoon.
Wind is expected to pick up to around 20 km/h. So, a bit breezy today with partly cloudy skies.
Further west, we’ll have some snow move into the Jasper/Hinton region this afternoon.
That snow will spread east through the evening and we’ll get some flurries in the Edmonton area late tonight and Wednesday.
2-5 cm is possible in western AB. However, the Edmonton area is only expecting a dusting to 2 cm.
Behind Wednesday’s low pressure system, we’ll see some cooler air drop in for the end of the week.
Not COLD. But, cooler. Afternoon Highs will slip into the -3 to -8 range for Thu/Fri/Sat.
AND…the latest GEM model output is leaning at a chance for a few centimetres of snow on Saturday.
After Saturday, milder air returns for early next week.
