Whew… That was a close one.
Following a rather frightening prediction from The Weather Network that was calling for up to 19 cm of snow at the start of next week, the YYC forecast has shifted dramatically for the better over the past 24 hours.

- Calgary ranked one of North America's most affordable cities for housing
- Calgarians can expect up to 19 cm of snow to start off this April
Now, both The Weather Network and Environment Canada are calling for a sunnier start to April, with the expected snow only potentially falling on Sunday night/early Monday morning.
That’s a far cry from the three days of snowfall we warned Calgarians of just one day ago, which really goes to show that the weather in this Albertan city truly can change on a dime.
The Weather Network is now calling for a 60% chance of snow-rain showers on Sunday, March 31, while April 1 and 2 are both expected to feature a mix of sun and clouds and highs of 6°C.
Wednesday follows up with a high of 8°C — get those tank tops and short shorts ready, people — and the rest of the week will continue the trend of sun, clouds, and mild temperatures.
We’re not giving any guarantees that the revised forecast we’ve put before you in this article is at all set in stone, but we will be sure to keep you informed if Mother Nature decides to throw us another curveball (knock on wood).
Until then, be sure to enjoy the sunshine during the first stunning days of April!
