With Halloween just around the corner, Albertans know that Halloween can be either warm or bitterly cold, and most people plan a costume that can be put over a snowsuit, just in case.
This year, it looks like we might be getting a treat instead of a trick when it comes to the weather. After seeing temperatures way below zero, it looks like we will be above freezing when young Airdronians look forward to filling their pillowcases with candy.
Justin Shelley, a Warning Preparedness Meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada explained we will start to see the weather shift this weekend.
"We're going to sort of get back to near normal in terms of temperatures and will have a broad upper ridge of high pressure over Western Canada. That's going to help see the temperatures in the region recover to values closer to normal for this weekend."
According to Shelley the normal temperature for this time of year is around nine degrees which we will get closer to starting Monday. The forecasted high for Saturday is zero degrees while Sunday is two degrees.
"It looks like early next week, including Halloween, we're going to see temperatures during the day, return to above zero values."
On Monday the daily high is forecasted to take a slight dip downwards to minus two degrees, but when Halloween comes around we are forecasted to see a high of 10 degrees.
Shelley stated while the forecast might shift slightly, but, no matter what it should be a nice day.
Last year's temperature for Halloween for Airdrie and the surrounding area was 7.5 degrees.
On Tuesday AIR 106.1 will host its annual Halloweenie Roast from 3-5 p.m. at Cooperstown Promenade.
