Summer Snow Falls in Canada

Zoonar/O.Kovach/iStock/Thinkstock(ALBERTA, CANADA) -- Mother Nature threw a curveball at residents of southern Alberta, Canada Friday when a mass of cold air turned rain into snow.

Mid-summer snow does occasionally happen in the reigion, but it's a rare phenomenon.
 
In Calgary, the white stuff melted as soon as it hit the ground, but at higher elevations in the Canadian Rockies, a good half-inch blanketed the ground.

Warmer air is moving in this weekend, and the weather will return to more normal summer temperatures for the week ahead.
