Snow is already in the forecast for Calgary this Friday

Calgarians may be waking up to snow on Friday morning, as cold temperatures and a chance of precipitations could combine to make for a snowy first day of fall.

In the past week alone temperatures in the city have lowered significantly, giving us our first sense of the impending autumn – but now we may even get an early taste of winter.

The Weather Network has snow in the forecast for Friday morning, with a low of -2°C. Environment Canada is also forecasting a chance of flurries on Thursday night, though with only a 40% possibility of precipitation.

Either way, it’s going to be a cold night, and with a chance of rain comes the chance of snow.

Calgary won’t be the first Albertan city to receive a dusting, as Edmonton just woke up to a layer of snow on Tuesday. Other parts of northern Alberta are also under a snowfall warning with forecasts of 10-15 cm for Grand Prairie, Hinton, Whitecourt, and towns in between.

Don’t worry it’ll stop eventually… like… March. Can’t wait to bring Frosty to life…

Along with a chance of snow for Calgary, Friday also marks the Autumnal Equinox, when we officially switch from summer to fall. The change takes place at exactly 2:02 pm MST on Friday, September 22.

Let’s just hope there’s no snow on the ground when we say a final goodbye to summer.
