It may come as a surprise to absolutely no one in Calgary that the closer we get to December, the colder this city is going to get.
- The Weather Network has released Canada’s winter weather forecast
- You can stay in this Pinterest-worthy yurt made from Canada's warmest parka
- Calgary Stampeders beat Ottawa RedBlacks to capture Grey Cup
But before we get to all of that, we’ll actually enjoy a few relatively mild days of 6°C highs, 0°C lows, and sunny skies for Monday through Thursday — though there is a chance of rain on Tuesday night.
The real cold comes around starting on Friday, with daytime temperatures hovering around -1°C and the night dropping to -6°C.
Saturday isn’t expected to be any warmer, with a high (if you can call it that) of -3°C, a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day, and temperatures plummeting to -9°C that night.
It’s not nearly the coldest that Calgary has ever seen, but it is a sign of what’s to come as we make our way into December.
Sunday will follow up with a chance of snowfall during the day, courtesy of a -5°C average and a 30% chance of precipitation.
So just be sure to enjoy that hot and toasty 6°C we’ll be seeing the start of the week while you still can, Calgary, because a wintery weekend is coming.
