Get geared up for one last sunny summer weekend in Calgary

Sep 6 2018, 11:06 pm

While some people might be hoping that this beautiful (and smoke-free) summer weather will be sticking around as we head into September, most Calgarians will know better than to associate “technically summer” with “warm” in this Canadian city.

Yes, the sun is expected to stick around for the next few weeks, but the warmth will not, according to a 14-day forecast from The Weather Network.

Next week’s highs are expected to hover between 12°C and 17°C during the day and drop down to as low as 3°C at night — still not the usual frigid temperatures we’ve come to expect from our falls, winters, and springs, but a far cry from the toasty summer highs we’ve become accustomed to over the past few months.

There is some good news, however, as we’ll get to enjoy one last summery weekend before fall begins to tighten its cold grip on this city.

The Weather Network puts this Friday at a (relatively) scorching 26°C, while Environment Canada’s weekend forecast places it at an even higher 28°C and mainly sunny.

Saturday follows up with a reasonable high of 20°C, while Sunday will drop down closer to what we’ll be seeing in the coming week with a lukewarm 16°C high.

So yeah, if you’ve been putting off that trip out to the Rockies or a float down the Bow River for a nice day, tomorrow is basically your last chance.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
