CALGARY -- If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times: if this article is short, it usually bodes well for Calgary.

Benign conditions overtake us for a few days beneath a high pressure ridge, though there is a drastic turn in the forecast through Sunday. The ridge will be moving by us by then, which will drop our temperatures dramatically and could create some inclement weather.

Two notes for Monday: first, the low temperature carrying into Monday evening is currently limited to 1C. Second - though as a caveat, we’re still a few days from a strongly verifiable forecast – our rainfall potential that day calls for around 10 mm, which would be the most rain we’ve seen in a day since Aug. 7th.

Carpe these coming diems! As Septembers go, this one’s off to a great "first-weekend" start, but Mother Nature offers few guarantees that it continues!

Here’s the five-day forecast:


  • Some cloud
  • Daytime high: 22C
  • Evening: clear, low 9C


  • Sunny
  • Daytime high: 26C
  • Evening: mainly clear, low 9C


  • Mainly sunny
  • Daytime high: 25C
  • Evening: mainly clear, low 10C

  • Daytime high: 14C
  • Evening: mainly clear, low 5C


  • Rainy
  • Daytime high: 11C
  • Evening: mainly clear, low 1C
