Record September snowfalls in Alberta


Staff writers
September 16, 2012 — Calgary is no stranger to early snow storms, from as recently as 2003 to as long ago as 1925.


The last five days of September in 1925 still stand as the snowiest start to fall since record-keeping began

Today is the ninth anniversary of the September 16, 2003 snowfall in Calgary, when eight centimetres of snow must surely have dampened the spirits of Calgarians not looking forward to an early start to winter.

But the last five days of September in 1925 still stand as the snowiest start to fall since record-keeping began in 1881.

It snowed on each of those five days.

Aside from making life difficult for travellers, the snowy weather made headlines as it halted farming operations across southern Alberta.
