After a summer full of heat waves, short-lived cooler temperatures are on their way out as more hot weather is coming to Calgary this weekend.

Last week saw four consecutive days of heat warnings before temperatures began lowering with some rain on Sunday. Highs have remained in the 20s so far this week.

The break from the heat won’t last long, though, and the weather is heating up again as we head towards the weekend.

According to Environment Canada, Thursday will reach a high of only 23ºC, but Calgary temperatures are forecast to be 30ºC with plenty of sunshine by Friday. Overnight, we’ll see 19ºC with clear skies before the weekend kicks off.
