Clippers Bring Light Snow Shots
Much colder weekend ahead
Along with the clouds, we have a band of snow entering the region. A light dusting of snow and any freezing drizzle will make for slippery spots at intersections and school bus stops. But in the open country you will see the greater chance for some blowing and drifting snow and west of the Valley. After the main snow band exists during the morning commute, there will still be a chance for some few leftover shots of snow throughout the rest of the afternoon.
The winds will also pickup to be gusty out of the northwest. This wind will persist in the valley all day and will finally start to die down in the evening hours before the sun sets. The temperatures will also reach the low 30s and upper 20s in the afternoon and it will be the warmest day before the cold strikes!
TUESDAY - WEDNESDAY: Temperatures will be just a bit colder on Tuesday. Our morning lows will be in the single digits for many while highs will be in the teens to low 20s for most. Alberta clipper-type snow storms tend to be fast movers, and we’ll see more scattered to isolated snow sweep through. Otherwise expect another mainly cloudy and gray day. As Wednesday comes, it will bring with it another chance of snow early and continued overcast. This chance will be scattered and light at most. It will also be a bit on the breezy side of things. The wind will bring much colder temps in with it, so Wednesday will be our last day with above average temps for a while. Expect those temperatures to be in the teens to near 20 for much of the day.
THURSDAY - FRIDAY: The cooler air arrives Thursday. Many look to start the day below zero and only warm into the single digits to low teens. Another Alberta Clipper could be hitting the region with, you guessed it, another chance of snow. This snow is going to be the evening to late hours Thursday, but as well as into early Friday morning. This will bring chances of blowing snow and low visibility. It will be another chilly day as well with this clipper train as they bring in reinforcing shots of cold air. Friday will be the warmer of the two days, with starting out in the single digits.
SATURDAY - SUNDAY: We finally have another break in the cloud as we head into our last weekend of January! But we will continue to see the temperatures dip even more. As we head into our weekend, we have temperatures starting out in the negative teens and not even getting out of the negatives. We will sit right below zero on both Saturday and Sunday.
