Still a few cold days before the warm-up: This is your Edmonton forecast
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.
