A snowy start to this Friday the 13th.
No heavy snow in the Edmonton Metro Region.
But, we woke up to a dusting and there's more in the forecast for early next week.
Edmontonians also woke up to a record-setting 167th consecutive day below zero.
As we talked about yesterday, the winter of 1974-75 had 166 consecutive days with a sub-zero temperature.
This year, the record-setting streak could stretch well into the 170s.
Flurries will move into Eastern Alberta later this morning or early this afternoon.
Edmonton gets some clearing and a much warmer day. After sitting below zero all day Thursday, we'll get to about 5 degrees today.
Saturday's the closest we'll get to 10. But, it's a one-off.
We cool to a high near 5 Sunday and then near 0 Monday/Tuesday with a good chance of snow.
Where the heaviest snow will fall early next week is still TBD.
But, there's a good chance that parts of Central and Southern Alberta will get 10-20cm (possibly even more).
