Alberta's annual rainfall and snow accumulation contribute to the prosperity of its agriculture sector and to its many leisure opportunities on ice, snow and water for residents and visitors alike.

Alberta daytime temperatures range from highs of more than 30 C during summer to -20 C and below in the winter. Watch the animation to see how average temperatures change throughout the year, or click the pause button and drag the slider to see more about average daily temperatures in different parts of the province at different times of the year.
Alberta enjoys the most hours of sunlight per year of any province in Canada, but the amount of sunlight per day changes with the seasons. Watch the animation to see how the number of hours of sunlight each day changes throughout the year, or click the pause button and drag the slider to see the amount of daylight on any day of the year.
If you're watching the animation and you see the hands on the clock suddenly jump, that's because Alberta uses Daylight Saving Time – we move our clocks one hour ahead in the spring and one hour back in the autumn to maximize the amount of daylight during a normal day.
