Calgary weather: highs in mid-20s expected by Thursday
It seems Calgary will finally be seeing some hot weather this week with the temperature set to hit 20 C by Wednesday and then climb even higher toward the weekend.
“We’re moving to more and more warmth generally across the province of Alberta for the next couple of days,” meteorologist Jordan Witzel said. “Here in Calgary, we’ll peak in the mid-20s through Thursday and Friday.”
Witzel is anticipating a high of 26 C on Friday, May 5.
According to Environment Canada, the record high for May 5 is 28.3 C, recorded in 1911.
Witzel warns weather will become unsettled by the weekend with a risk of thunderstorms and more seasonal temperatures expected by Sunday.
He said the average daytime high in Calgary in early May is 14 C.
