Mother Nature finally decided to give Calgary a rare win.
Following what has been a seriously unsettling year, Calgarians can sit pretty knowing that the weather won’t be one of their worries — at least not for the next few weeks.
The Weather Network’s short and long-term forecasts show an extremely mild month ahead, before we get to all of that one last taste of summer is predicted to round off September.

This Monday, September 28 is expected to reach a high of 28°C with mainly sunny skies by this afternoon, and will likely be the last time this year that Calgarians feel temperatures above 25°C.
The rest of the week will come close, with temperatures ranging between highs of 21°C and 22°C (well, except for Tuesday, which will only get up to 17°C).
Wednesday and Thursday are going to be the cloudiest days of the bunch, though we’re not complaining about a mix of sun and clouds rather than mainly sunny skies — especially given the record-breaking snowfall we’d seen around this time last year.
The 14-day forecast finds Calgary cooling down ever so slightly by the second week of October, with highs hovering in the teens and a light rain by Monday, October 12.
The monthly forecast for October, finds October 13 marking the first day of the month where the low could hit freezing. By Halloween, the historical average low hits -5°C — so a spooky snowfall may very well be in the cards.
We’ll just have to wait and see.
