Calgary was treated to a bit of whiplash over the weekend when it saw sunshine and a high of 20 ° C on Saturday before waking up to snow and freezing temperatures on Sunday.
After some Albertans reported sunburn, snowfall warnings were put into effect for areas along the foothills of the province on Saturday evening. A snowfall warning was also issued for Calgary on Sunday at around 12:40 p.m. and ended at 5:13 p.m.
According to The Weather Network, the cool weather will last until early this week before giving way to milder conditions in the middle of the week.
“Although there are no major storms in sight, some additional footage of cooler and choppy weather is possible in the last week of April,” says The Weather Network.
Calgarians took to Twitter to demonstrate the weather difference between Saturday and Sunday.

Put this in the “What a difference a day makes” folder. To save you guys from scrolling, I’m going to repost a photo I took and tweeted yesterday with a photo I took today. From sunny & 21 ° C to snowy & below 0 °. Yesterday’s shot had 21 people; today i was alone in the park. #yycweather 🙂 pic.twitter.com/TMb18PhDt9
