I don't think Calgary will see much accumulating snow. Maybe 2-4cm on grassy surfaces that's about it. The heaviest snow will be to the south and west of the city (Banff down to Lethbridge) where 15-30cm could easily fall.

Temps however will remain cold, looking at the models I can see Calgary staying in single digits beginning tomorrow right into Wednesday next week. The coldest will be Sat-Sun with highs near 0C, overnight lows of -4C to -5C.

Only someone from Calgary could put a positive spin on that forecast. Chance of flurries alone would be highly demoralizing. Vegetation will be dead. Winter will have begun in many ways.

Hey, anytime the snow doesn't stick is good. It may be cool but it will be sunny here.

My indoor plants come in tonight.

Environment Canada's latest forecast show back to low teens from Tuesday.

Even the local forecaster's trends show it recovering around mid next week.

Still plenty could change of course. Nothing beyond 1-2 days is ever accurate here.

This is just how fall in the high prairies / foothills goes, some days are cool and some are really nice, but it is highly variable. We will get back up into the 20's and I'll get out on the MTB trails in the foothills again. The benefit is we are about 6 weeks out from the start of ski season!

We out west tend to look for positives in the weather instead of complaining about it.

The damage will have been done by that point. Trees, flowers, veggie gardens, done for the winter and not back for 7 to 8 months. That is insanity and it happens every year. It is what is sure, every climate has its good and bad. But hitting 20 after it snowed and was below freezing is not quite the same as doing it otherwise.

Heavy rain again. We never used to get this as much. People don't even know what to do when it's heavy. My commute home...





Look at it flowing on the road!

Sorry I was looking at The Weather Networks forecast. I know Calgary's weather forecast changes everyday, sometimes drastically. Who knows what tomorrow will bring haha.

Pretty similar to mine but a couple of differences...

January & February: Victoria
March: The Fraser Valley
April, May, June: The South Okanagan
July & August: Montreal (MTL had the warmest month recorded in 2018 beating all of Canada, and this year got beat by 0.4C by Windsor)
September & October, November: Extreme Southern Ontario (November is still mild and green in Southern Ontario, and a little bit sunnier than BC coast)
December: Victoria

I've stopped using the Weather Network years ago.

Calgary's forecast changes like 4 times a day.

----

Winter Storm Watch for southwestern Alberta. Doesn't include Calgary yet.

Some of those areas could get 50+cm.

The air feels quite chilly and trees are dropping their leaves quite quick now. The change is in the air...

It's much cooler today, cool west wind, only 20 degrees and low humidity. I think there is a risk we could drop below 10 tonight. The forecast is 12, so we'll see.
