Calgary expected to see an entire week above freezing

We made it to the other side, Calgary.

Following a week of bone-chillingly cold weather, this Albertan city is set to see a much milder week, with daytime temperatures remaining above freezing — giving us all a chance to thaw out, according to The Weather Network.

The big shift took place over the weekend, with a still-frozen Saturday making way for a Sunday that saw temperatures reach close to 0°C for the first time in a full week.

Monday has followed up with a high of 2°C that may feel a little closer to -2°C, but that’s basically T-shirt weather compared to the -30°C days we were just experiencing.

Tuesday through Sunday sees the daytime high fluctuate between 1°C and 5°C (that high will be seen on Friday).

Sure, the nights are going to get as low as -9°C on Wednesday and consistently dip below freezing throughout the week, but that’s what thick windows and weighted blankets are for.

Tuesday may even see a bit of snowfall, with the forecast calling for a 20% chance of less than 1 cm — not much to complain about, especially considering the blizzard that recently buried the East Coast.

All in all, it’s a pretty mild week ahead for Calgary, and seeing as there’s no true knowing when the next bout of winter weather will hit, we’d suggest making the most of these days while you can!
