Warm temperatures not expected to last long
Warm temperatures are expected to be short-lived as we will be seeing snow later this week. Yesterday (Dec 5) there was a high of 16 degrees but that is all going to change. "We've just been in a super dry pattern basically for most of the fall there was that one event that you guys had in October that gave you a little bit of snow. But once it's melted, November was above 0 for the entire month until the last day," said Weather Preparedness Meteorologist for Environment Canada, Alysa Pederson. Pederson said there will be more of a snowfall event happening as we continue to move through the week. "At this time, it looks like it's mostly north of the Strathmore area but it should be coming through. We could be getting 5 cm or more." Tonight there will be a low of one degree with periods of snow and then heading into tomorrow (Dec 7) there will again be a high of one and snowfall. "Only in the last 30 years, 64% of the time there has been a white Christmas. The average precipitation we usually get for November is around 13mm." Pederson added that temperatures are going to drop back towards the freezing mark with the snow by Thursday. "Yesterday (Dec 5) was the last day for you to get outside and enjoy the weather."
