Calgary’s longer-range forecast: Well above seasonal

Shorter weather articles mean calmer weather articles – gusts may reach the mid-30s in Calgary today, and that likely ends up as the most significant event of the day weather-wise in these parts.

We’ll have some long stretches of sunshine, with cloud building up later down the line.

Friday’s rainfall forecast is once again verifying on the lower end, with one to two millimetres making a return as the prominent feature. The instability values of this passing through have increased, which further increases our chance to see a passing thundershower as this rain moves by.

For Saturday, Sunday, and beyond, we have a line of forecast highs that climb above the 14 C seasonal marker. Approaching from the longer-range forecast’s perspective, this continues as strong lead through the first work week of May

It may begin to feel repetitive, but campers – check the link for the latest on Alberta’s fire bans. A couple of millimetres across southern Alberta isn’t going to help much.
