WeatherCalgary has four full seasons, with pleasant summers (averaging 73 F/23 C) and winters that can be cold (averaging 5 F/-15 C in January). The city's weather is extremely variable—summer days can be hot (95 F/35 C), but the city has experienced snow in every month of the year. Occasionally in winter, warm Chinook winds raise the temperature rapidly, almost instantly melting the snow. We think the best time to visit is from midsummer to early fall. Take along a warm sweater or a jacket for the evening chill. If you're planning a trip into the mountains, take something for the rain and cold—no matter what time of year. Because of the altitude, the weather around Banff is especially unpredictable—even in summer, the evenings can be very cool.
