Up to 10 more cm of snow expected to fall on Calgary this week

Start getting used to the white stuff, Calgary.

Following an abrupt shift in seasons last week, which transported us from the pleasant and colourful fall we’d been enjoying throughout September to the regular, snow-covered Calgary you’d expect to see outside of June, July, or August, The Weather Network is calling for even more snow this week.

No one single day is particularly stormy, though we will be seeing a few flakes here and there to total upwards of 10 cm between Monday and Sunday.

The snow will first fall this Monday with under 1 cm expected throughout the day and 2 to 4 cm overnight.

The trend continues on Tuesday with 1 cm, and Wednesday with 2 to 4 cm before a blessedly dry Thursday.

But, before we know it, Friday will follow up with around 1 cm, then continue into Saturday when another 1 cm is forecasted to fall.

Sunday will thankfully live up to its name with a mix of sun and clouds with no snow on the forecast — but that is six days away, and the weather in Calgary can be a fickle beast.

The temperatures in YYC are expected to drop to low of -15°C on Thursday and Saturday nights, while the highs (if you can really call it that) will be seen on Tuesday topping out at 2°C.

Stay safe (and warm) out there Calgary, because we’ve got a long winter ahead of us!
