Cochranites are waking up to another chilly morning, with wind chills hovering around -34°C.

Time to break out the swim trunks and headache medicine. 


By this afternoon, Cochrane should be sitting 35°C warmer.

This jump is a welcome break from a recent cold snap Cochrane has been experiencing over the start of December.

Temperatures like this in Cochrane are not unheard of in December, with the town's average daytime high this month hovering around -0.6°C.

Of course, the sudden jump in heat does not come alone. Cochrane is predicted to have blowing wind throughout the afternoon topping off around 50 km/h.
