Calgary is finally set to see some sunny days that may just be warm enough to convince us that it’s actually summer.
Seeing as the province has been contending with thunderstorms, wildfires, and unseasonably cool temperatures, Calgarians may be happy to learn that sunshine is on the horizon… though this week’s forecast does also come with its own share of weather woes.

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday are all expected to start the week off on the right foot with a mix of sun and clouds, only a 30% chance of precipitation, and highs of 24°C, according to The Weather Network.
Thursday will be somewhat similar, though there is a risk of thunderstorms mixing in with the otherwise summery day.
Friday will be the golden child of the week, with highs of 23°C, unimpeded sunshine, and only a 10% chance of precipitation. All in, there should be about 14 hours of sunshine on one of the most exciting days of the Calgary Stampede.
That risk of thunderstorms does return on Saturday, though it will at least feel as warm as 27°C throughout the day.
Sunday will also bring more sunshine YYC’s way, with 13 hours of sun and highs of 23°C.
Welcome to summer, Calgary!
