Summary

This Remembrance Day marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Flags at all Government of Canada, Alberta and City of Calgary facilities will fly at half-mast from sun up to sun down

Weather for the ceremonies will be chilly

CALGARY (660 NEWS) – This Remembrance Day marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Flags at all Government of Canada, Government of Alberta and City of Calgary facilities will fly at half-mast from sun up to sun down.

A number of ceremonies will be held across the City of Calgary to honour veterans who have served and continue to serve Canada.

Meteorologist, Andrew Shultz with Breakfast Television on CityTV says it will be a chilly Sunday morning.

“Our high (is) minus 1 and we do have a chance of flurries in the forecast, particularly later in the day. So I would go with a slight chance of snow flurries for 11 a.m.,” said Shultz. “With that temperature at minus 1, that’s five degrees off pace from average… four degrees is average so it will be a little chilly you’ll want to dig out that winter coat.”

Some indoor ceremonies are limited to civilian seating.
