    Temps got down to 2oC here last night with a rain/snow mix. Snow settled just above the town at about 5500ft

    Sorry for the poor quality phone pic (the pic you see had no snow on it yesterday as its south facing and snow melted long time ago)

    WOW - amazing!

    But is it unusual?

    Certainly nothing summery in this neck of the woods. It's appalling!

    Its known to have the capability of snowing in every month here, does it usually happen? this is the first time in over 3 years for me for July, and especially after it was mid 20oC's just 2 days ago

    The July snow is not totally unusual, I was in Banff at the end of July many years ago, I would say 1964, and it snowed during the afternoon for a while (in the town, not up in the mountains).

    This weather system has developed into a big severe storm event further east as this unseasonably cold air hits a more typical 27 C air mass and last night there were some pretty strong storms in southern Alberta and Saskatchewan, today it looks like southern Manitoba.

    We also had very strong wind gusts here in Vancouver yesterday when this front came through about 18z and some large tree branches came down, one of which nailed a city bus (no injuries, thankfully).
