Reason #14 of '101 Reasons Why I Heart Edmonton'

The Sunshine

by emil tiedemann

WHEN you think of Edmonton’s weather, the first thing that might come to mind is snow. Sure, we get snow, but that’s just some of the time. And even on some of those occasions, the sun is shining bright! 
 
Edmonton is one of the most sunshiny cities in the country!


You see, Edmonton is actually one of the sunniest cities in all of Canada, behind only Calgary and Regina for major metros. 321 days out of the year, and nearly 2,300 annual hours, the sun is out over Edmonton. At its peak, during the summer solstice, Edmontonians are exposed to just over 17 hours of sunlight in one single day, and temperatures that can reach nearly 35 degrees Celsius! 

So, if you’re planning on visiting or moving to Edmonton - which would be a wise decision, if you ask me - you might want to pack your sunscreen and Ray-Ban’s! #yegshine
