Calgary Travel Guide

Weather in Calgary

Daytime and nighttime temperatures can differ widely, because of Calgary's dry air (there is little atmospheric moisture to slow temperature swings) and its proximity to the mountains.

In the summer, overnight temperatures often drop close to freezing (Calgary can get snow in ANY month of the year), yet reach daytime highs of 30 C (90 F) by noon. In the winter time, "chinook" winds can raise the temperatures as much as 50 C (100 F) over a few hours, evaporating snow so fast that the slush stage is skipped.

Dress with multiple layers no matter what the time of year or the weather forecast. Because of the dry air, it's a good idea to use skin moisturizers and lip lubricants.
