The climate in Edmonton varies depending on the year, but we still experience 4 distinct seasons. When school begins in September, Autumn is just beginning. Moderate temperatures, beautiful colors, and falling leaves characterize the outdoors. Autumn is followed by Winter, which usually lasts until March or April. Expect very cold temperatures and a large amount of snow. After the long cold months, the snow and ice melts away in April to May. When all of the slush and snow is gone the warm and beautiful days of Spring start to appear. This enjoyable summer weather lasts until school begins again in September.
