You’ll want to stay bundled up today as the mercury will be dropping significantly in Calgary.
Saturday saw some better than average temperatures in the city with a high of 2 C, but Environment Canada is calling for a chilly end to 2018.
Flurries on Sunday morning and winds gusting up to 50 km/h will be accompanied by a temperature plunge throughout the day, with Sunday’s daytime high at -6 C and a low of -23 C with the windchill in the afternoon.
There’s a 30 per cent chance those flurries will continue overnight and into Monday and colder temperatures are expected to stick around on New Year’s Eve with a low of -11 C.
New Years Day on the other hand looks like it will be a great start to 2019 with a daytime high of 0 C and an overnight low of just -1 C.
And that warmer weather should stick around until Thursday next week when the forecasted high will be 10 C.
Environment Canada issued extreme cold weather warnings for northeastern parts of the province on Sunday morning, so don’t forget some extra layers if you’re traveling north for the new year.
