If you are looking for a city that goes through all 4 seasons in a calendar year, you have come to the right place! Calgary enjoys sunny hot summers, very cold winters and everything in between.

The city has a windy environment, which it owes to its prairie location – there are a few natural barriers to the wind. Wind in Calgary (especially in the winters) can take the form of a Chinook. A chinook is a warm, dry wind that blows in from the Rockies.

A Chinook can raise the temperature in Calgary by as much as 30 degrees celcius, providing some relief to the bitter cold.

Weather in the city is often variable and is especially difficult to predict from day to day – as Calgarians say, “Just wait 5 minutes.”
