Late January was a cold one as temperatures reached close to -30, with last night being around -20, but now things are looking to start warming up.

Jesse Wagar, a meteorologist with Environmental and Climate Change Canada, mentioned things are warming up across the province.

"I think that five to 10 degrees for daytime highs are probably a safe forecast through next week."

As Airdrie saw, we had a few days that brought snow and temperatures around the -20 to -30 range.

"We've been stuck under a pretty cold airmass that has come down from the Arctic over the last little while and its starting to move out to the east,"

This cold air will be replaced with warmer air coming in from over the rocky mountains.

A large change in the forecast like this, where we could see anywhere from 10 to 20 degrees in difference, could cause headaches or migraines, explained Wagar.

What happens after next week it's tough to say, but then again, living in Alberta, who knows what tomorrow will be like.

For this weekend, Environment Canada is predicting a sunny Saturday with a high of five, while Sunday will be a mix of sun and cloud with a high of five.
