Saturday morning temperatures at the Edmonton Blatchford station measured -16 C with winds 4 km/h out of the north, northwest. With a stinger -19 wind chill, clinging.
The sun is expected to emerge from the overnight envelope of clouds and flurries, as though from a silken cocoon. Turn your face to it, as it burns to a high of -5 C today, away from the bite of Friday’s -18 C. Ride the rhythm as spring draws near, now a moth, diminutive, unassuming yet unfurling like its cousin butterfly, pollinating all the while.
For Sunday, skies will again hum grey, largely shutting out the bright ball. Mercury will creep to -2 C, bursting forth to a high of 6 C in full sunshine Monday. Dust off tethered wings, take aim at the realms of spring — rubber boots, marbles, caterpillars, a people protected.
Today: Clearing early in the morning, wind up to 15 km/h. High -5 C with a wind chill of minus 27 in the morning but dropping to minus 9 in the afternoon. UV index 2 or low.
