Calgarians are in for a little relief as temperatures rose slightly over the weekend. But the Weather Network is predicting heavy snowfall in the city this week. Over 30 cm of snow is forecast for parts of the province by Wednesday.
Forecasters say heavy snow will blanket Calgary within 24 hours, disrupting driving on roads. Drivers are therefore advised to plan their journeys in advance.
Friday was the coldest day in Calgary with a low of -30 degrees Celsius. Before this, the coldest temperature was recorded on February 1, 1989 (-31.9 degrees Celsius).
