Calgarians are no strangers to fluctuating temperatures.
Combining a true Canadian winter with the occasional chinook, it can sometimes be hard to know what kind of weather to dress for when walking out the front door… and this next week is no exception.

- Calgary was hit hard by harsh winds and snow on November 16
- Calgary's forecast calling for 5 cm of snow, low of -15°C this weekend
Snow, ice, and freezing temperatures have been staples in the forecast over the past few days, and while we’ve already seen a few flakes fall alongside some harsh winds on Thursday night, Friday night is expected to be when the real cold comes in.
The thermometers around the city will likely plunge down to -14°C on Friday night, accompanied by periods of snow — if Environment Canada’s 7-day forecast can be believed.
The chill won’t last long, however, as that same forecast calls for a high of 14°C by next Wednesday, with temperatures rising slowly but surely on each day in between for a total spread of 28°C.
Whether Wednesday’s warm weather will be enough to thaw Calgarians out of the cold spell expected for Friday night is still to be seen, but given the continuous sunshine that is shown on the upcoming forecast, we’d say it’s reasonable to hope for the best.
