December Weather reports for Wainwright/Provost

Why are these areas not reported on??? Information on tavel through these areas is very important, considering winds & snowfall!!!

Regional coverage

I couldn’t help but notice that while you cover every area around the cities (even though it’s a ‘farmer’s almanac) you have no coverage whatsoever for the east central areas near Wainwright, Provost or Lloydminster. Why is this?

Regional Coverage

The Editors's picture

Our forecast covers the entire region shown in the map above. The cities listed on the map and named on this page are only there to help readers get their bearings. If we named every city and town in the region, the list wouldn’t fit on the page, but you can search by town or postal code in the search bar above.

Forecast for Calgary

This is a first. It predicts showers and cool for August but we are in a heat wave in Calgary.

Alright.... where's summer?

Red Deer - Not much rain in early spring... but now..... wow, how much rain can fall here? This is getting nuts. June was very cool and rainy. July looks to be the same and August is forecast to be worse!! This has been a brutal two years now.

When can I safely plant my garden.

I want to plant my plants in my pots is it safe from frost. I live in Grande Prairie Alberta.

Not much rain yet.

Red Deer, AB - Not much rain yet. Has been a mostly cool spring save for a couple days. Has hit plus 20 and looks to again this week.

Hoping for a much dryer summer than last. Almanac calling for a wet Aug. Need the weather to cooperate. Farmers need it this year after disaster last year. Plus, economy has collapsed and dealing with COVID. Interesting time to be alive in Alberta.

Why did the settlers stop here?

Seriously, after 20+ years in Alberta, I still wonder why the settlers stopped... this place sucks.

Very accurate predictions

We farm by Wembley AB and the Almanac has been pretty spot on so far this winter with both the temperature and precipitation predictions. And historical information shows that they are very good at their job. Keep up the good work Almanac. February 3/20 -26 at the farm. One more cold snap... come on spring.
