Thu Feb 26, 2015 09:37 AM CST Despite some changes to the position of the jet stream and location of major weather features during the coming week, we will continue to see cold weather and little precipitation across Western Canada. The westward shift to the upper trough across Canada actually takes away the threat that Alberta will see the brief warm spikes experienced recently.
Thu Feb 19, 2015 02:11 PM CST The weather pattern is like a broken record with repeated surges of cold weather across central and eastern Canada with most of the central and eastern Prairies sharing in the cold. Alberta has seen temperatures vary from frigid to mild as arctic conditions play tag with Pacific air.

Thu Feb 12, 2015 10:52 AM CST Arctic air will take charge across most of Western Canada, where it has not been in place, during the next several days. A slight shift westward of the upper trough will allow for western expansion of bitter cold during the next week.
Thu Feb 5, 2015 11:45 AM CST A cold air dome across the central and eastern part of Canada will keep the central and eastern Prairies cold during the next week or so but some Pacific air may bring periods of much milder temperatures to the southwest Prairies at times. Improving prospects for some snowfall are also in the cards.
Thu Jan 29, 2015 10:34 AM CST Expanding amounts of arctic air across northern and central Canada are soon to make a return to Western Canada during the next few days and bring an end to the spring-like temperatures of the recent couple of weeks. The dry pattern is also expected to continue for most areas.
Thu Jan 22, 2015 09:50 AM CST Winter is being kind to Western Canada as all of the cold weather remains across northeastern and eastern Canada. Pacific air has made it over the Rockies and sent temperatures to well-above-normal levels for most areas, but is mostly lacking precipitation.
Thu Jan 15, 2015 10:45 AM CST Cold weather has eased significantly across Western Canada during recent days and western parts of the Prairies have seen temperatures jump to well-above-normal levels. The mild pattern will last into next week but a new cold pattern may appear later this month.
Thu Jan 8, 2015 09:53 AM CST The new year has brought bitter cold and wind to the Canadian Prairies and brings back memories of last winter's nearly endless cold. Temperatures should moderate considerably during the upcoming week.
