What’s the weather like in Calgary in November?
Calgary enjoys the last of the mild and crisp late autumn conditions this month. The Calgary weather in November is very dry considering winter’s on its way, with decent sunshine levels making trips around the city quite pleasant.
Calgary is found in the south west of Canada, in Alberta province, and surrounded by open prairie grasslands. This provides very few natural barriers to the wind. As well as cooler winds blowing in from the Rockies, winds called Chinnock can also occur and these raise the temperature unexpectedly. Calgary is over 1,000 metres above sea level and the weather can be difficult to predict at this altitude.

Temperatures in the city can fall nearer to zero this month on colder days, with the normal daytime temperature hovering around 3°C to 4°C. Sunshine levels are impressive for a city quite close to the Rockie Mountains, with up to six hours each day from nearly ten hours of daylight. The sun rises at 8.30am and sets at around 6.10pm at the beginning of the month. The humidity level will be 81% on average and the UV low is low. The winds are light at just 8mph but can increase if seasonal winds reach Calgary.
