If it wasn’t crystal clear that summer has officially ended, this week’s forecast should probably do the trick.
While Calgary is known to be the sunniest city in all of Canada with an average of 333 days of sunshine per year, this week is, unfortunately, the exception.

The one brief respite of sunshine will come on Friday with a sweltering high of 9°C, but other than that Calgary will be facing rain, snow, and sleet for the next seven days, beginning with Wednesday evening according to Environment Canada.
Chances of snowfall pepper the forecast, mixing in with rain on Thursday and Saturday and becoming a chance of full-on flurries come Sunday night and Tuesday.
The coldest it can expect to get will be -2°C on Saturday night, though Sunday and Monday night are expected to be barely any warmer.
Still, we’re not yet facing the -20°C and -30°C that Calgarians have come to expect from a true Canadian winter, which means that there is still time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors while you still can.
…Just be sure to bring some waterproof boots and a thick pair of mittens if you do.
