What’s the weather like in Calgary in May?
Calgary is in southern Canada close to the Rocky Mountains, surrounded by beautiful scenery. It has a climate with warm, damp summers and bitterly cold winters. Temperatures finally start to feel warm in May after the freezing period of the year comes to an end, though it’s still very cold at night during this month. If you want to try and catch the end of the ski season at one of the nearby mountain resorts, May is a good month to visit Calgary.
The average temperature at this time of year in Calgary is 10ºC, reaching a high of 16ºC in the warmest part of the day. Although there are clear skies and ten hours of sunshine each day, temperatures fall to an average low of 3ºC at night, so you’ll need to pack plenty of thicker layers. A waterproof jacket or umbrella is also a good idea, as half of the days in May see some rain, with 60mm forecast for the month in total.
