Hopefully, the warm weekend didn’t motivate you to stow away your winter boots and toques, because Calgary is under a snowfall warning.

Environment Canada predicts 10 to 20 cm of heavy, wet snow will fall in Calgary and across southern Alberta today and tonight.

“Snowfall amounts will be highly variable and dependent on elevation,” the weather agency states. “Lower portions of Calgary may see less than 10 cm while higher areas, most notably the northwestern part of the city, will likely see higher amounts.”

The temperature is expected to hover around -1C today. Flurries are expected on Tuesday, with a high of 3C.

But don’t give up hope on barbecue season yet, it is expected to warm up toward the end of the week, with a high of 11C in the forecast for Friday.

While mid-April invokes memories of sunshine, this is not the coldest or snowiest April 16th in history. In 1901, Calgary was -10.6C, and in 1933, more than 27 cm of snow fell over the city.
