Calgary weather always seems to keep us on our toes.
While the next seven days are all expected to be nothing but blue skies and unimpeded sunshine, the temperature is another matter entirely.

Hovering at a relatively mild high of 5°C and low of -1°C as we head into the weekend, according to Environment Canada, things take a turn for the cold on Saturday night when the thermometers are expected to plunge down to -8°C.
Sunday follows up with a crisp and cool 0°C, and then things warm right back up with a high of 9°C on Monday and an astounding 11°C on Tuesday — meaning that between Saturday night and Tuesday afternoon, Calgarians will experience a full 19°C swing.
Whether or not the warm spell will be enough to thaw what snow remains on the ground is still to be seen, though a general lack of precipitation over the coming two weeks could spell a snow-less Christmas here in YYC.
Which honestly wouldn’t be the worst thing to happen — seeing as we’ll probably be seeing our fair share of snow as we head further into winter.
