Over the course of the next week or so, snow and ice is about to turn into slush in Edmonton, Alberta and surrounding areas.
EDMONTON — Taking a look at Edmonton’s 7-day-forecast by The Weather Network, you’ll quickly notice that there are no minuses to be seen in the day’s highs. Every day, from Saturday until next Friday, we’ll be hovering above, although just slightly, zero degrees Celsius.
With that said, opening up the 14-day-forecast, you notice that every day afterwards, falls back below zero degrees Celsius, but not by much! And who knows, we may stay above zero, as things in the forecast are always changing. It’s not an easy task to predict weather 14 days in advance, and nobody has perfected this.
Today, Edmontonians are sitting at a -9°C, and after adding in the windchill, it feels like -16°C.
This is a fact:
Those residing in and around Edmonton usually start to experience temperatures above zero degrees Celsius consistently in early April, at least until the next winter approaches.
Just for fun:
The record low for February 10 in Edmonton, Alberta was -42.8°C in 1884, with a record high of 10°C just five years later, in 1889.
Make sure you’ve got your windshield washer fluid topped up!
