The extended weather forecasts for Canada are in, and if you were hoping Calgary would be getting a milder winter this year due to our truly horrific summer, you’re in for a rude awakening.
We’re not saying it’s going to be minus fifty for four months straight, we’re just saying it’ll be colder than usual.
Of course we do live in sunny Calgary, and being east of those lovely Rocky Mountains will produce wonderful chinooks throughout the winter – but there will be days you’re going to want to call in sick, and sit bundled up next to your fire place (or heating vent if you’re stuck in a shitty two bedroom apartment).
November is looking to be on par with seasonal temperatures for the most part. It should be relatively mild during the day, but a bit chillier when the sun goes down.
December isn’t going to be as snowy as people might want for a beloved white Christmas, but it rarely is here in Calgary so that’s not much of a difference.
January we’ll see a slight dip in temperature with the forecast saying it’ll be around minus nine, but we’re guessing adding a little wind and factoring the sun setting, it’ll feel a little more like minus fifteen on some days.
We can’t wait to see what February and March will look like…not.
