Calgary summer a bit hotter, smokier than usual

(Sandra Prusina - 660 NEWS)

Hot, dry and smoky conditions continue in Calgary adding to the extreme weather we’ve seen throughout the summer.

Lingering wildfire smoke from B.C has prompted another air quality statement for the city but it’s expected to clear out Monday afternoon.

660 NEWS Meteorologist Andrew Schultz said this summer has been a bit hotter than usual.

“It does continue. I think we’re almost at ten 30 degree plus temperatures for those day time highs, I think nine officially when on average we can see two or three, so, it has been a hot and sticky summer,” he said.

Schultz adds it will continue to be hot for the next eight to 10 days, but later in August we will start to notice some cooler evenings.

Starting in September, he said we will see more moderate temperatures and though there may be some hot days, it’s unlikely we’ll get to plus 30.

Last week, the province issued more than 40 low-water related advisories across Alberta.
