The festive month of December is coming to Calgary alongside some seasonally-appropriate snowfall, according to the most recent forecast from The Weather Network.
Up to 15 cm of snow could fall on YYC over the weekend, beginning on Friday night and continuing into Sunday morning, all thanks to a low-pressure system sweeping into Canada from Colorado.

Combined with a high-pressure system from the Rockies, The Weather Network states, the unusual set-up will make for 10 to 15 cm of snowfall in Calgary, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, and Cypress Hills, while Edmonton will likely see closer to 5 cm of snow and Red Deer between 5 and 10 cm.
Environment Canada shows lost of -7°C for Friday and Saturday nights, while Sunday will drop all the way down to -10°C.
The week to follow warms up slightly, though don’t expect much above the freezing point — even with sunny skies and clear nights.
It’s not nearly the same kind of snowstorm that hit Calgary in early October of this year, but will likely be enough snow to cover the city and give Calgarians that extra holiday feel.
