Here's what Calgary weather is looking like for New Year's Eve

Dec 29 2019, 11:01 am

We’re officially into the heart of winter, and in Calgary that means that the temperature can range from above freezing to well into the -20s and -30s.

…Which is why it is always important to keep an eye on the forecast, especially when you’ve got some big plans in the making.

With New Year’s Eve on the horizon, we’re sure that many Calgarians are eagerly awaiting a big night out on the town this Tuesday — and the weather will actually (apparently) be cooperating, for once.

Do keep in mind that the forecast in Calgary always seems to be at least somewhat on the fritz, so keeping a close eye on whatever The Weather Network is predicting is a good call in the days (and even hours) leading up to a night out. But so far, we’re looking pretty good.

Tuesday, December 31 is expected to come in at a high of 3°C that feels like 1°C, dropping down to a low of just -2°C in the night.

It’s not exactly a warm winter night, by any means, but it’s definitely not so-cold-you-don’t-want-to-leave-your-house kind of weather, either.

A 30% chance of precipitation means that bringing an umbrella along for the last night of 2019 might actually be a decent call, though we’re sure that a few glasses of champagne will work just as well to keep you warm — or at least not caring that your hair got a little damp.

The rest of the week shows a steady decline into freezing, but we’ll all be nursing a week-long hangover at home with the blinds drawn anyway, so the weather won’t really be much of a factor in the foreseeable future, right?

Have fun, stay safe, and have a happy New Year’s Eve, Calgary!
