Record-setting high? Calgary experiences October temps in December

CALGARY — The “Trifecta” is back — that’s a wave of high pressure, a strong burst of sunlight, and a wave of westerly wind, all culminating together — and could break a record today:. The current record of 12.8 C was set back in 1939, and – well, you’ll see how warm we look below!

High pressure is expected to persist for a few days to follow, and we’re back into “boring” forecast conditions past today, where high pressure dominates and keeps us far above seasonal.

That’s it. That’s the article. I’ll bring in a neat science fact tomorrow!

As a reminder for the youths: reach out to me at the bottom with both weather photos, AND with Weather in the Classroom requests! I figured Zoom out and would love to help weather units across the school board.
