Edmonton weather: Now the real winter begins — for a few days

Don’t put away that light coat you put to use all November just yet.

While you might be stocking up on more wool socks while elbowing all the additional shoppers sick and tired of waiting for parcels destined to become Christmas presents to arive, come the weekend, you’ll still want to wear cotton.

Today’s forecast calls for a high of -2 C — but windchills of -17 C this morning and -7 C this afternoon thanks to wind gusts of 20-40 km/h — down to a low of -12 C tonight, followed by highs Wednesday and Thursday of -8 C and -7 C, respectively.

A warming trend is due to arrive Friday, when the forecast calls for a high of -1 C. Sunday is slated to be T-shirt day with a high of 4 C, with Monday practically tank-top weather with a high of 6 C.
