I did say that it was possible that my Meteorological past would make a foray into this blog from time to time. This happens to be one of those times. 😉
We in Alberta are about to witness an interesting weather event. You wouldn’t know it from Saturday, as temperatures rose to a balmy 3C (37F) here in Calgary. Sunday, however, is a different story. We’re about to get hit by a very intense Arctic front courtesy of the Siberian
High coming for a visit.
I thought this map of early next week might give you an idea, you don’t have to be a Meteorologist to get the gist:
As an Accuweather blogger put it here, this is the kind of thing Calgary is likely to see this Sunday…
8am Sunday…….-3 celsius (26 F) and partly cloudy
11am Sunday……-5 celsius (23 F) as the Arctic front arrives, wind picks up with some light snow.
Noon Sunday…….-10 celsius (14 F), windy with moderate to heavy snow and blowing snow.
2 pm Sunday…….-16 celsius (3 F), light to moderate snow and blustery.
5 pm Sunday…….-23 celsius (-9 F), light snow.
9 pm Sunday……..-26 celsius (-15 F), light snow.
Noon Monday…….-29 celsius (-20 F), flurries.
Temperatures could fall to -36 to -38 celsius (-32 to -36 F) Monday night and early Tuesday morning!
It’s always fun here in Alberta. 😉
