Calgary's false spring Friday will give way to snowy Saturday

Today is turning out to be one of those beautiful early spring days that make you want to go outside for a walk in the warm sun.

But don’t be fooled. Winter is far from done with Calgary, and we’re going to see it tomorrow as a weather system is expected to bring 5 to 10 centimetres of snow to the city.

Don’t expect gentle, picturesque snow either. Be prepared for cold winds and blowing snow. Expect winds to pick up Friday afternoon with speeds of 30 km/h gusting to 50 km/h. Those winds are forecast to continue through Saturday.

Also, it’s going to be cold, with temperatures forecast to fall to -12 C on Saturday afternoon. And it will remain cold on Sunday, with highs of -6 C.

Although Calgary is not under a specific weather warning, surrounding counties southwest and southeast of the city are under snowfall warnings for Friday night and Saturday. They’re expected to see 10-20 centimetres.

Don’t worry, because spring-like conditions will return just in time for the work week. Calgary could see sun and temperatures as warm as 10 C by next Wednesday.

But for the weekend, resign yourself to the cold and snow as Old Man Winter rears his ugly head at least once more this season.
