Some snow in parts of the Capital Region overnight.  That precip & some wind helped draw some of the warm air aloft down to the surface.
Temperatures hit +2 at 1am in Edmonton.  But that's the warmest we'll be all day.
We'll have temperatures in the -3 to -6 range for most of the morning & early afternoon.
The wind is down though & skies are clearing this morning.  The snow is moving off into E-Ctl Alta & Edmonton will get some sunshine for the late morning/early afternoon hours.
Partly cloudy skies developing later this afternoon.

The warmer air aloft is gone by this afternoon.  The upper ridge is being replaced by a weak upper trough.  
A stronger & deeper upper level trough will develop through the weekend.  So...we'll cool off & get back to "more cloud than sun" conditions.

Looking LONG Range:  
Temperatures are expected to slide into the -10 to -15 range for highs next week.  
Winter "officially" starts 1 week from today & it appears it will being with a week of temperatures about 5 to 10 degrees colder than average.
That mean a "colder than average" Christmas.  
Right now, the GFS ensemble is predicting a high of -18.  I think that's overdoing it a bit (we'll likely be a BIT warmer).  
But...based on the pattern as it looks now, I don't expect the Capital Region to be warmer than -12 or -13.
