Calgary Winters

As we step into the next week, a significant drop in temperature is heading our way, sending us as Calgarians – back to reality. Here’s what to expect over the weekend and next week:

Friday, January 5: The week starts with early snow showers, followed by broken clouds. Daytime temperatures will reach about 2°C, dropping to around -6°C at night.

Saturday, January 6: Expect late light snow and overcast skies. Temperatures will be similar to Friday.

Sunday, January 7: The cold intensifies with light snow and cloudy conditions. The high for the day will be around -8°C, with a frigid night at about -20°C.

Monday, January 8 onwards: The following days will continue this cold trend, with some days experiencing temperatures in the low negatives, and even dipping below -18°C. Snow and overcast conditions will persist.

For Calgarians, this means it’s crucial to prepare for the cold. Make sure home heating systems are in good working order, dress in warm layers for outdoor activities, and exercise caution while driving as roads may be slippery.
