Edmonton weather: The snow will never let go, unlike Rose


Article content

Currently, it’s -2.4 C at the Edmonton Blatchford station, with calm winds.

OK, I know Titanic was released in 1997 but I’m still annoyed over this.

I mean, Rose clearly let go of Jack and let him sink to the bottom of the freezing ocean. You’re telling me there wasn’t enough space on that door for the both of them? I’m not so sure about that. She didn’t even really try to hold on….

Anywho, it snowed overnight.

While forecasters are calling for temperatures to be above zero for the foreseeable future they’re still expected to below or near freezing overnight so there’s a chance we could see more snow seemingly every day next week until…Friday. Might even see some rain mixed in there, too.

Until then, I hope everyone has a Happy Easter 🐰
