Prairies: Several reinforcing shots of arctic air, frigid wind chills this week

  Prairies: Several reinforcing shots of arctic air, frigid wind chills this week The next little while will feel like we've skipped the final days of October and gone straight to late November.After a swath of snow ended the weekend for parts of the Prairies, quickly plunging temperatures are set to make the first half of the new week feel more like November or December. While the extremely cold pattern will somewhat relax at times for some, several reinforcing shots of arctic air will persist well into next week and beyond.

'Unusually cold' will be the key phrase for much of the country for the first and second weeks of November, and the Prairies will lead the way in that respect as cross-polar flow drives repeated blasts of Arctic air into the region. Temperatures more typical of mid-winter will also spark periods of snow, particularly for Alberta, through the first half of the week. We take a look at what to expect, and how cold it gets, below.

Repeated cold fronts trailing down over the western Prairies will bring several bursts of snow to the region through the week ahead. The very dry, Arctic air increasingly in place over the region means accumulations will be pretty limited for most, with one big exception -- western Alberta.

While intense Pacific moisture will be mostly missing from the pattern, long periods of upsloping winds will help to wring what moisture there is out of the air over the Rockies, to the tune of 40+ cm of snow over the central foothills.

The heaviest accumulation will be confined to higher elevations, but there's still a healthy helping of snow in the cards for places like Red Deer and Calgary, where up to 15 cm is expected through Tuesday.

The Arctic high pressure driving those upsloping winds in Alberta will also spur temperatures more appropriate for December by mid-week, as even afternoon wind chills drop into the minus teens.
