Currently, it is 1 C at the Edmonton Blatchford station, with winds of 26 km/h coming from the south, southeast.

I know it’s not uncommon to see snow in the forecast for this time of year, but I’m officially over it. Typically at this point there is a glimmer of hope that summer isn’t too far away and we can get outside and enjoy all the fun things that come with warmer weather.

Unfortunately, we seem to be in for a decent discharge of white stuff throughout the day and into the night. About 2cm should fall during the day and another 5-10cm will build up overnight.

Not to mention that the winds will also be gusty. Up to 50 km/h during the day and gusts up to 40 km/h at night.

Then yes. I’m really done with having to write about the less than ideal weather. However, in anticipation of the weekend, I might get what I hope for, just maybe.
