With the Victoria Day long weekend starting tomorrow, you might need an extra jacket or hoodie if you plan on spending time outside.

According to Environment and Climate Change Canada Meteorologist Andy Yun, the weekend will be a more typical spring weekend than the May long weekends we have had in the past.

"We've had temperatures this time of year in the low 30s. Unfortunately, temperatures climbing into the low teens will not be like that this weekend."

Saturday, Sunday and Monday daytime forecasted highs are all around the 12-degree range with the overnight lows nearing zero degrees.

"Unfortunately, it does look like a fairly unsettled weather pattern with a pretty good chance of showers for those three days."

For those who are travelling to the mountains for the long weekend in the Banff area, Yun mentioned the weather will be pretty similar to Airdrie.

"We'll start the weekend off with some slightly cooler temperatures. But again, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, we're looking at temperatures fairly close to seasonal (around 12 degrees)."

When it comes to any type of fire bans or restrictions, Airdrie and Rocky View County have nothing in place, if you are camping or travelling and want to know if the area you are in does have some type of restriction, click HERE.

"For anyone heading outdoors or heading camping the best thing to do is keep track of the latest forecast and be ready for changing conditions.

If you are in the Banff area, they have some specific restrictions in place that could end up costing you a lot of money if you do not follow them, click HERE to see them.

Heading into next week, Tuesday and so on, Yun believes the cooler trend will continue for a bit before we can see the temperatures start to rise.

"Everybody wants to get out for the first big camping trip and it just pays to be ready for anything."
