Alberta Weather

Alberta's climate varies from day to day and from one part of the province to another, as it extends over 750 miles (1,200 km) from north to south.

The dry continental climate means warm summers and extremely cold winters. Alberta is the sunniest province in Canada with daylight hours ranging from 16 to 18 hours in June and six to eight hours in December.

About one-half of the annual precipitation is due to thunderstorms that occur from late May through early September.
