Spring has finally sprung in Calgary with highs of 13°C expected this week

Apr 17 2018, 3:39 pm

After what feels like a solid few years of winter, Calgary is finally set to see some uninterrupted sun in the coming week.

The remnants of the city’s last snowfall warning may still be seen on the lawns, roads, and sidewalks across YYC, but Environment Canada is forecasting warmer weather that may just melt the snow away for good (or at least until late September/early October).

Tuesday has a chance for scattered flurries throughout the day and into the night, but once Wednesday starts Calgarians will be getting a fresh hit of Vitamin D, and may even be able to venture outside wearing no more than light jackets.

Friday is the real winner of the week, coming in at a hot 13°C with sunny skies, followed by a crisp night of 4°C.

A small break in the scheduled programming will come on Saturday in the form of clouds and rain, but what’s April without a few showers?

Sunday and Monday are both looking bright and warm, and we can only hold out hope that the same trend continues as we get closer to May.

Of course, all that warmth mixed with the heaps of snow still piled around the city means that there will be plenty of snowmelt to deal with. Make sure to wear your most water-proof boots as you enjoy the week’s sunshine.

… A small price to pay for an end to the snow, don’t ya think?
