Alberta Foothills Weather

November 25

The periods of snow we were forecast to get this weekend evaporated and we got nothing. A big high sliding down from the north pushed a cold front across here this afternoon, which is slated to hold it’s ground against the mountains tomorrow as a huge trough piles in from the coast. Models seem to agree that the foothills are going to get left out of whatever precip happens tomorrow when these two hefty systems crash together, with the mountains and areas to the east of us getting a few cm. then maybe a few cm for us on Tuesday. Most of northern Alberta is below -20C tonight and not going to warm up much tomorrow. Not as cold here yet, at-13.

Fort McMurray … -26.. windchill -37
Cold Lake………….. -21… windchill -31
Edmonton…………. -17… windchill – 27
Sundre …………….. -9 … windchill -16
Pincher Creek…… -6 … windchill -13

I was out in Sylvan Lake this afternoon just as a little snow’n’blow arrived from the northwest. Went down to see how the freezeup of the lake was coming along and was surprised to see folks out checking with skates on! The whitecaps on the open water were only 1/2 mile from the shoreline, plus a stiff siberian breeze… Brr!
