This weekend is likely to be cold, but we will still enjoy a short break from the seasonal climes.
On Thursday, temperatures could soar to minus three.
Snow is coming with the warmer air, according to Terri Lang, Meteorologist at Environment and Climate Change Canada.
“So we will see a few weather systems move through Wednesday and Thursday, bringing that chance for snow with them,” she said. It doesn’t seem like there is too much accumulation, but it is something to watch.
Lang stated that minus 3 is going to feel “sort of balmy in comparison to what we’ve had”.
“However, however, after that, and after another system goes through late Friday into Friday, we will see a real gradual slide towards some colder temperature,” she explained. “Christmas looks very cold, and it will remain cold probably through the new year.”
She stated that the forecast for Friday, Christmas Eve, is for snow and blowing powder, which will make driving difficult.
Let’s not forget about how cold it will be by Christmas morning.
Lang stated, “Overnight lows likely close to minus 25 but wind chill is probably taking them into sort of the 30 range and keeping it cold for Christmas Day.”
She warned that the flurries could persist well into Christmas Day so anyone traveling should dress warmly and prepare to drive in these conditions.
