The jokes about never knowing what to expect with Calgary weather are getting really old after another snowfall hit the city last night.
It wasn’t a massive dump of snow by any means, with Environment and Climate Change Canada saying we got a mere 1 cm, but it was just the fact that it was happening that got everyone down.
Well I was warned it would snow in #Calgary in April. Meanwhile it is 26C in #Toronto and the roof of the @BlueJays ballpark is open. I love #Canada 🇨🇦 🍁 #summeriscoming pic.twitter.com/kiXrgGyeZN

I would like to decline this sudden snow squall whacking #yyc at the moment. I did not sign up for a snowstorm on April 12. pic.twitter.com/RKW3Bym2uF

The last couple of weeks of actual spring weather may have lured some people into a false sense of security. Last night’s sudden snowfall caught quite a few people off guard.
Who, in #yyc, took off their snow tires? 🥊 https://t.co/RqEDOIFTK2

Meanwhile, some other people in Calgary got ahead of the snowfall and planned an exit strategy.
Is this a good time to mention I booked a last-minute vacay to the Dominican Republic this morning? 🇩🇴 #yyc #yycsnow pic.twitter.com/OFOAiNN6S6

Now, if you’re new here, you may be wondering if this is normal. The short answer is, yes. The Calgary record for snowfall on April 12 was 17.7 cm back in 2012.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the last of the snow we are expected to be seeing in Calgary.
We have a 60% chance of flurries today in Calgary and another 30% tomorrow before the sun comes back for the weekend.
Do you think that person going to the Dominican has room for one more? Asking for a friend.
