Summer may be winding down across Canada, but it certainly isn’t over yet by any stretch of the imagination. It is only August after all.
But if you need any kind of reminding that the sun and warm weather isn’t going to last forever, there are actually places in Canada that are getting snow right now.
Yes, snow. In August.
In British Columbia, the temperature dropped down to freezing in at least 2 communities.
Prince George saw it fall as low as 0 degrees today, and even worse was Burns Lake, where it dropped to -1.5 degrees.
But freezing temperatures were not the worst part for Canada. Along the border of B.C. and Alberta, snow is actually in the forecast today.
Yes. Actual snow in Canada during summer.
Canmore traffic cameras have captured snow falling on the road leading to Calgary today.
People on social media in Canmore have also posted photos of the snow on the ground.
No, you’re eyes aren’t decieving you in these photos. That’s fresh snow that has accumulated in the mountain parks of Alberta near Banff, Canmore and Lake Louise since Sunday afternoon. ❄️☃️ #ABStorm pic.twitter.com/HTrSpw1qOR— Jeff Adams (@jeffmadams) August 27, 2018
But thankfully, isn't falling across the country quite yet. In more eastern provinces such as Ontario, there are heat warnings currently in effect.
Canadian weather really is completely unpredictable. If you’re in one of the warmer places in Canada make sure to enjoy the weather while it lasts.
Soon enough we’ll all be putting on boots and coats to go outside.
