Cloudy with some sun by afternoon and warmer too

The weather, currently.

It's official, winter has arrived! Well... the meteorlogical start of the season. The next 3 months are typically are the coldest and usually snowiest. Meteorological seasons follow the annual temperature cycle, while the astronomical seasons follow the position of earth in relation to the sun. That will occur later this month on the 21st.

Anyway, your Friday morning will be under mainly cloudy skies with a wake-up temperature near 1°C, feeling like -4°C.  By the afternoon we will start to see some sunny breaks and that will help boost our temperature. Our high will push up to 7°C in the late afternoon. Gusty winds will also still be a part of the forecast, 30-50km/h from the S.

Friday night: Cloudy and breezy with showers developing by dawn. The low is 6°C.

Happy Meteorological Winter!

Your calendar may say the season starts Dec. 21st, which is called Astronomical Winter, but for meterologists and climatologists, Dec. 1st marks the beginning of Meteorological Winter — the coldest three months of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

NOAA uses these climatological seasons to make record-keeping more meaningful. Astronomical seasons change from year to year as they’re based on sun angles and solstices and equinoxes can fall on different dates. But, meteorological seasons stick to calendar months each year.

Dec. 1st is usually when winter-like weather starts as well, so bundle up! And if you’re in a snowy area, stay tuned for forecasts of any possible snowy systems.
