My Alberta Experiences
These are my Alberta experiences.
I am Canadian, and have been born and raised in Manitoba. Manitoba facing extreme cold weather - so cold and windy in the winter, your eyes water from the wind and your eyelashes stick together. Watch this:
Every time I've been to Alberta, I've never been faced with weather as cold as that. It will still be very cold if you're not used to Northern winter weather.
The the Environment Canada page is definitely one of the best places to keep in touch with the weather for Alberta. You really need to understand the windchill factor, however. The temperature may say -20 degrees celcius, for example. You may then read that with the windchill, it is actually -40 degrees celcius. That is how the temperature actually feels due to the extremely cold blowing wind.
Alberta is very beautiful no matter what time of year. I would definitely go back. Not only does Alberta have beautiful mountains and lakes, but is also home of the Alberta Badlands. You can visit where the dinosaurs once roamed and visit a really neat museum with all types of prehistoric artifacts and fossils.
The weather in the summer is great! It's not extremely hot, as it would be in Arizona for example. Temperatures can range from anywhere between 10 degrees celcius to 30 degrees celcius in the summer. In the winter, the temperature is considerably lower, ranging from anywhere between 1 degree celcius to -35. The spring and fall are exceptionally mild, with temperatures comfortable enough that you can walk around outside with just a light sweater on and be very comfortable.Barry's Response
- One thing you can count on in Canada, and Alberta especially, is that the weather will not be reliable.
I'm glad you had some good experiences, though.Search
