Published Tuesday, December 18, 2012 9:28AM MST
The pattern hasn't really changed. So, if you read yesterday WxBlog...all of that still stands.
It still looks like we'll be in the minus 20s by this weekend & for much of next week.
Winter Solstice is Friday and it looks like winter will "officially" start with temperatures about 15 degrees colder than average.
As for snow, the band of light flurries moved into the Capital Region overnight.
It's not really moving, so we'll just have to wait until it fizzles out.
That should happen late this morning or early this afternoon.
No significant accumulation expected.
After the flurries, skies gradually clear. Overnight lows will likely get into the -20s in the city.
Areas outside the city (especially to the north) could get closer to -30 by Wednesday morning.
Edmonton Forecast looks like this:
Today - Flurries ending near Noon. Cloudy w/ sunny breaks.
Temperature steady near -12
Occasional wind chill near -20. (Wind: NW 10km/h)
Tonight - Clearing
(closer to -30 for areas outside & north of the city)
Wednesday - Sunny in the morning. Partly cloudy afternoon.
Thursday - Mostly cloudy.
Friday - Mostly cloudy. 60% chance of late-day snow.
Saturday - Mostly cloudy. 60% chance of late-day snow.
Sunday - Mostly cloudy.
