It’s been a rollercoaster week for weather in Calgary, starting with record temperatures and ending with a major snowfall.
The week started on Monday with a 25°C day, the warmest it has been on 17 October. It ended with some parts of Calgary receiving 20 cm of snow.
And people were less than impressed.

Well, it escalated quickly. First snow of the year and it’s a wet and heavy one. Our mild autumn left many leaves still out… now weighing branches 😥 went outside to beat the snow… fun? 🌨️🤷🏻♂️#jjc #abstorm #snoctober https://t.co/roJcozpxK7 pic.twitter.com/Pat4zLZyfz

And it wasn’t just a random snowfall that melted as soon as it hit the ground. It was heavy, wet snow that stuck and caused problems for trees across the city

And it was especially shocking to people across Calgary because of the good weather we had.
🥇 Cross out. After 152 consecutive days with maximum temperature ≥12°C in #Calgary, the maximum temperature yesterday was only 6.2°C. We broke the all-time record before the run ended. #YycWx #ABWx pic.twitter.com/GMIgMjDzds

According to YYC WeatherCalgary just completed its longest stretch of temperatures reaching 12°C ever.
But, in true Calgary fashion, we made the most of it.

And if that doesn’t warm your heart on these cold days, nothing will.

And of course, if you don’t like the weather in Calgary, just wait a bit. We are poised to return to double digit highs by the weekend.
