Calgary may see snow early next week

Sunday, September 7, 2014, 9:10 AM - Calgary's weather looks just perfect this Sunday.

By the afternoon, it'll be 25oC and sunny, with not really enough humidity to make it too uncomfortable.

But - and we mean this sincerely - soak it all in while you can, because Monday and Tuesday will be a very, very different story. It won't get much warmer than 10oC on Monday, and on Tuesday and Wednesday, it'll be the low single digits.

And then, there's this:

Yes, Calgary has a chance to see its first real snowfall of the season, thanks to a cold front advancing from the north.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement - NOT a warning - for the city and much of western Alberta on Sunday morning, saying the current thinking is that up to 5 cm of snow is possible in some areas.

The system will reach Calgary by Monday evening, with at least a rain-snow mix making itself felt for anyone on the roads.

It'll carry on through the night into Tuesday, with overnight temperatures down to near-zero. 

But while accumulations are almost assured for areas west of the city, Weather Network meteorologist Tyler Hamilton says the situation within Calgary itself remains to be seen.

"Ground temperatures will be warm from the previous day, so snow will have a difficult time sticking to warm pavement," he said early Sunday morning.
