It's been almost 3 weeks since Edmonton was above zero.  

The city hit +3 back on January 23 and should get 3 or 4 degrees above zero again this afternoon.

It'll be warm today.  BUT...windy too.

Gusts in most of Central and Northern Alberta will be in the 40 to 60km/h range.

We also have some precipitation in the north.  Watch for a rain/snow mix in the Peace Country early today and then a couple cm of snow tonight.

In the NE - wet flurries and periods of light snow today/tonight.


Edmonton and area gets a slight risk of some rain/snow mix this afternoon.

The best chance for precipitation is a risk of flurries late tonight as the cold front drops through.
