The climate of Calgary (Canada)
Calgary is the largest city in the province of Alberta and famous for the Olympic Games and speed skating competitions that are held here. The city is situated at a higher altitude which makes it easier to break records. Calgary has a continental climate influenced by its high elevation and the Rocky Mountains which are in the vicinity. Calgary has long and cold winters. During the winter there is a short interval here caused by a wind from the Pacific, also known as the Chinook Wind which supplies warm air and causes temperatures to rise by about 15 degrees Celsius for a short period of time. Summers are short and warm with temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius. Because of the altitude and relatively low humidity figures temperatures drop rapidly during the evening here. Night time temperatures can be rather low during summer.
