Edmonton weather: Windy all day every day — hooray!

article content

Currently, it’s -8.9 C at the Edmonton Blatchford station with 23 km/h winds, gusting to 34 km/h from the north, northwest making it feel like -18.

So I guess this is just the way things are now.

Sure, it’s not like we’re living in Lethbridge, or insert name of windy southern Alberta locale here, but still this wind is hardly ideal. Forecasters aren’t giving us much hope either with wind gusts of 30-50 km/h expected to stick around for the better part of this afternoon before easing up somewhat to 20-40 km/h later tonight. I guess that’s good?

Oh, and snow. Did I forget to mention the snow? We could see some snow (about a 60 percent chance) starting sometime tonight after 8 pm and carrying on into tomorrow morning.

Oh and wind chill. Did I forget to mention the wind chill? Looks temperatures will be hovering around the -10 C mark tomorrow morning but like it’ll feel closer to -18 with the wind.

I swear, it was just 20 C the other day and I was doing yard work. April, why must you torment us so?
