Calgary could still see white Christmas, despite warm spell

Calgarians may be feeling the urge to say “Mele Kalikimaka” instead of “Merry Christmas” right now.

It’s two weeks to the big day, but the city isn’t seeing any snow flakes.

In fact, there’s such a big warm spell in Calgary, a 127 year old warm temperature record was broken on Saturday.

Meteorologist Andrew Schultz said a very mild air mass has been sticking around areas through central B.C. to west Saskatchewan, but that could change just before December 25th.

“(It) looks like this very warm stretch will be coming to an end by the middle of next week, so it looks like a week from this Wednesday, basically back to average, and it looks like there’s a good chance for some snow flurries by the end of next week,” he said.

For those who are enjoying the temperatures, Schultz said there’s still time to enjoy them.

“I think we’re done with the records — closest would be (Monday) and (Tuesday), and even then a few degrees off. Warmer than average every day down the next seven days for sure,” he said.
