A look at Wednesday’s Edmonton weather by Environment Canada.
Currently, it’s -13 C at the Edmonton Blatchford weather station with 6 km/h winds from the southwest and a wind chill of -17.
This is ideal winter weather. Temperatures are hitting the perfect range to get out and enjoy all the exciting activities that are fun to do in the snow.
Whether you enjoy hitting the slopes, gliding through trails, or gracefully skating over the ice, you couldn’t ask for better.
Today’s daytime high is set to hit -6 C with a mix of sun and cloud. Mild winds throughout the day will make it feel like -19 this morning and -13 this afternoon with the wind chill, which is still a far cry from the temperatures earlier this week.
Temperatures are a bit up and down over the next little while but there isn’t a deep freeze in the short-term forecast and we should make it to the middle of the month without temperatures taking another nose dive.
As long as you dress for the weather this is the ideal time to get out and play!
