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).

Stay tuned...
