Calgary's next big snowfall to hit the city early this week

Nov 18 2019, 9:29 am

Well, it had to happen eventually.

Calgary has been enjoying some mild fall weather over the past few days, with the snow all melted, the sun shining, and temperatures hovering above freezing — so it was only a matter of time before we were hit with another snowfall to remind us exactly where we’re living.

The next flakes are expected to fall on Calgary by Monday night, dropping from a daytime high of 10°C down to -1°C once the sun sets and seeing a 90% chance of two to four cm of snow overnight, according to The Weather Network.

Tuesday isn’t expected to break freezing, with a high of 0°C that feels a little more like -4°C and a low of -7°C.

That same 90% odds will be at play throughout Tuesday, expecting to bring down another five to 10 cm of snowfall by the time all is said and done.

It’s not the most snow that Calgary’s ever seen in a day by any means, but it will likely stick around through Wednesday, as temperatures will get to as low as -12°C and a high of just 0°C.

Relief will come by Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, which will all feature sunshine and highs ranging from 5 to 7°C.

Let’s just hope the weather stays (relatively) mild as we head closer to the true winter — because we all know how hard that’s going to hit.
