I don't pay attention to those long term forecasts whatsoever. Things like the farmers almanac are bunk. The truth is, weather forecasters can't accurately predict what's going to happen a week from now. All of a sudden we could see that on Thursday we're going to get dumped on with 20cm of snow. I would jump for joy if this warm weather lasts for another month. Give us some snow in February, because by March, things are already getting to the point where snow melts because of the longer days and hotter sun.

Crazy weather. Apparently Lethbridge was the warmest place in Canada. Windy too (of course), would have traded the wind for some snow though.

Does anybody know where to find historical data on temperatures during Edmonton's history. I'm curious where this November/December rank over the past few decades.

Has to be up there. Hopefully this starts to become a trend rather than a once every couple decades occurrence. I'll take this over snow any day.

According to wikipedia, January is both our coldest, and the most heavily snowed month.

oh we will get hammered in january at some point, you can count on that. Although I remember last year, it was mid to late January, we also had a stretch where it was like +5 to +7 and it lasted for about a week.

+11 today! 19 degrees above normal for this time of the year. It felt like a super-chinook out there today.

Will take this weather over a normal winter every single day of the week! Took the dogs for a 3 hour walk in just a t-shirt and shorts.

other than hockey season, i have no use for winter at all !! after all the snow we had last winter, if we can get through this winter with relatively mild weather, then i'll be happy as a pig in mud. bring on an early spring !!

Hey we do deserve a early spring after having snow falling in June last year.

I read an article from Josh Classen today saying he doesn't see much in the way of precipitation for the rest of January. That's fantastic news. I can even handle a bit of cold if we can avoid the snow for the rest of this month. Bring it on in February, because it's going to start melting in March anyways.

That's the potential consequence I'm worried about - that winter is inevitable and that it'll just arrive late as it did last year. Brutal spring and late start to summer.

Glad to know all is still warm for you guys, though... I'm Iphoning from a dive boat off kona Hawaii, expecting you'll get hit someone soon. Sure don't want it upon my return.

Pretty big storm being predicted for Edmonton right now. Here is a good radar link if you want to follow its progress towards the city. I am still hoping it makes a miraculous turn and avoids us. I'm not banking on it though.

We've had a very gentle snowfall in the Grande Prairie area since late this morning. Looks nice.
