Mother Nature has forsaken us.
Well, honestly, a late April snowfall isn’t entirely out of the ordinary for Calgary, but still. Come on.
We reported a snow-filled forecast earlier this week, though the heavens have (somewhat) changed their minds about how exactly Calgary will be covered this weekend.
In the previous post, The Weather Network’s seven-day forecast called for up to 14 cm of snowfall spaced out over the full weekend… while the new forecast is looking a little different.
Instead of a full weekend of flakes, the majority of the snowfall is now expected to come down just on Saturday, April 27, with 10 to 15 cm predicted for that one day alone.
A little less than 1 cm of snow could also fall on Friday, but it will be mixed in with around 1 mm of rain… and with only a 60% chance of precipitation at that.
Sunday will actually live up to its name and bring a bit of sunshine, though with a high of only 1°C on both Sunday and Monday, don’t expect that fresh snowfall to thaw out anytime soon.
We know that May snowfalls aren’t exactly a rare occurrence here in YYC either, but we’ve still got our fingers crossed that this Saturday will be the last big snowfall for some time to come.
