Tuesday morning temperatures at the Edmonton Blatchford station measured -2.5 C with 9 km/h winds out of the west and a -6 wind chill.
Nope, no meteors this morning. I checked. Nothing. Nadda. Carry on.
One thing we can look forward to today is plenty of wind as forecasters are calling for 20-40 km/h gusts basically all day with a low-to-slight chance of some snow to boot. Temperatures will be above zero this afternoon so we can look forward to more melting snow and ice and water everywhere (my gutters are not happy right now). The wind is expected to die down later tonight as things will get a bit chilly again (-11 wind chill) compared to last night when the temperatures didn’t even dip below freezing.
All in all, it’s another February day above zero so you won’t get any complaints from me. Might need to invest in some ice melt though…
Does Lisa need a coat (and mittens)?
It’s not warm enough to leave everything at home but it’s not cold enough to layer up, either. I like the hoodie/sweater and gloves combo. Happy middle.
