EDMONTON -- One streak ends and another continues.

The deep freeze still has a few days left in it.

BUT...it looks like we WON'T hit -30 in Edmonton today.  So, the streak of consecutive days hitting -30 ends at four.

The last time we had a longer streak of mornings that cold was 1980 (6 straight days).


The string of days without getting above -20 continues though.

Today will be the 6th consecutive day with a high of -20 or colder and we'll run that streak to 7 days tomorrow.

That'll be the second-longest such streak in the past 25 years.


Milder air still looks poised to roll in for next week.

Temperatures will climb to the -15 range Sunday.  That's still about 10 degrees below average.

But, it's a lot warmer than we've been all week.

Monday and the rest of next week will have daytime highs in single digits and possibly even near zero on a couple afternoons.
