Mostly sunny skies along with seasonally average temps will persist on Friday with daytime highs of -2c (28f) south and -6c (21f) north with light SW winds except for Marmot where moderate SW winds will be blowing on the ridge tops. Saturday looks to be the start of a pattern change with increasing clouds and flurries by afternoon with Marmot in best position for light amounts of 2-4cm (1-1.5").

Saturday night into Sunday a cold front will push over the Rockies with resulting light snow across the range with areas south of Banff, especially Castle, with a cumulative snowfall of around 15cm (6") possible into Sunday night. Resorts around Banff and north to Marmot can expect lighter amounts of 5-10cm (2-4") possible into Sunday night. Mountaintop high temps will cool Sunday ranging from -6c (21f) south to -12c (10f) north with moderate SW winds across the Rockies.  

Light snow degrades to flurries Monday with another few centimeters possible and daytime temps similar to Sunday’s. A mix of sun and clouds with moderating daytime temps looks to be the best bet for Tuesday and Wednesday. Thanks again for reading and as always, I’ll keep you updated on any changes.
