Calgary Weather

Weather

Calgary has more hours of sunshine than any other major city in Canada, making it a great destination any time of year.

Be prepared for changes in temperature as weather in Calgary can vary day to day and season to season, and even hour to hour. Mild westerly winds called “chinooks” bring warm temperatures to Calgary, raising winter temperatures by as much as 15°C in just a few hours.

Expect warm summer weather, some cooler temperatures in the winter, and a mix in the fall and spring. You should expect to wear shorts and t-shirts comfortably in summer months and a warm jacket during the winter. 

Calgary sits at an elevation of 1,045 metres above sea level.
