With the long weekend now just hours away, things will start off pretty nice, but that might change.

Janelle Gergely,  a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada explained things will be pretty nice leading up to the weekend.

"The beginning of the weekend is going to be quite nice. We do have a ridge moving in, which means warm temperatures in sunny conditions. The normal for this time of year and Airdrie is negative one, so we're going to be sitting well above normal."

Saturday evening things will take a turn as there are multiple systems passing through Alberta, one on Saturday and one on Sunday.

"There might bring a possibility of rain or snow in the Airdrie area on Saturday, as well as Sunday and Monday."

As it is predicted to warm up a little bit Sunday morning from the system late Saturday, the second system coming won't be as nice.

"The cold air that's coming in is going to bring our temperatures well below normal. So any initial rain will very quickly change to snow.  I would expect travel on Sunday evening to be quite slick."

For those travelling to and from the mountains, Sunday and Monday can expect colder temperatures and possibly slick driving conditions explained Gergely.

"The cold is coming and it's going to come in pretty strong. We're gonna see the cold set in and then sweep across the province. By Tuesday morning, it will be cold right across the province."

According to Gergely temperatures starting Tuesday will drop to around the -20 range.

Right now the forecasted schedule for Saturday is a high of five, Sunday is a high of seven, and Monday is around -8.
