Calgary is notorious for experiencing chilly and sometimes even snowy weather over the Victoria Day weekend, and this year seems to be no exception.
The long weekend is affectionately referred to as “May two-four” by Canadians, and the Victoria Day holiday actually falls right on May 24 in 2021.
Some rain is headed our way in the coming days, although it doesn’t look like Calgary will be seeing any of the fluffy white stuff, and low double-digit temperatures are in the forecast.
