Josh Classen's forecast: 'Warmest' day in weeks for Edmonton and it's just the start

wxblog Jan. 23 2024

Temperatures are set to hit single digits in Edmonton today. That'll be the first time we're above -10 C in about two weeks.

Jan. 8's high of -9 C was the last time we had a single-digit high.

BUT...we should be even warmer than -9 C today.

Today's high around -5 C will be the mildest day since Jan. 5's high of -1 C.

Wednesday's high will be a degree or two warmer and we're expecting to be right around (maybe slightly above) 0 C by Friday afternoon.

The warmer air continues to flood in through the weekend and into next week with daytime highs projected to be in the 4 to 8 C range from Sunday through to Thursday.

So, after a lengthy cold spell, January will end on a warmer-than-average note.

No significant chance of precipitation for the Edmonton area in the next few days.
