Alberta Foothills Weather

February 25

Pretty boring weather around here since the last post. Foggy, mild, and quiet. The warm pacific air has pushed so far up into Alaska and Northwestern Canada it will be interesting to see if winter can make a serious return now. The forecast models are suggesting the arctic air will make a rush south next Tuesday-ish, but won’t make it this far west before the warm pushes it back again.

We had Grandad out for dinner yesterday and as we were heading out we were chatting about the abnormally warm weather and springlike sky, he wondered if we might not be in for a month long cold snap in March? In his 92 years of weather watching, he has picked up a lot of prairie wisdom from all over southern Alberta, and also shared this tidbit:
6 months after a winter fog, look for rain.
We have had more freezing fog in the past month than I can remember seeing in a whole winter. Wet August coming up?

The snow here has mostly disappeared, only the drifts are left, and there doesn’t appear to be a lot of it on the way. Most of the goodies we were set up to receive this week have been pushed up north and it looks like we get scraps again. No blizzards showing on the forecast models, but they don’t agree much on anything past tomorrow, and there is a lot of moisture on the way through, so we shall see.
