Calgary is located approximately 280 (170#160;mi) south of Edmonton and 240 (150#160;mi) north of Montana, by extensive ranching country. 75% of the province’s population lives in the Corridor .

Most of the northern half of the is boreal forest. while the Mountains along the southwestern are largely forested (see Mountain forests and Alberta-British foothills forests ). The southern of the province is prairie. ranging shortgrass prairie in the southeastern to mixed grass prairie in an arc to the and north of it.

The central aspen region extending in a broad arc the prairies and the forests, from north to Edmonton, and then to Lloydminster. contains the most soil in the province and most of the Much of the unforested part of is given over either to or to dairy farming. with farming more common in the and centre, while ranching and agriculture predominate in the south.

Climate [link]

Alberta has a dry climate with warm and cold winters. The province is to cold arctic weather from the north, which produce extremely cold in winter. As the fronts between the air shift north and south Alberta, temperature can change

Arctic air masses in the winter extreme minimum temperatures from −54 °C (−65#160;°F) in northern to −46 °C (−51#160;°F) in southern Alberta. In the continental air masses produce temperatures from 32 °C (90#160;°F) in the to 40 °C (104#160;°F) in southern Alberta. [ 11 ]

extends for over 1,200 (750#160;mi) from north to its climate, therefore, varies Average temperatures in January from −8 °C (18#160;°F) in the south to −24 °C in the north, and in July from 24 °C in the south to 16 °C (61#160;°F) in the north.

The climate is also influenced by the of the Rocky Mountains to the southwest, disrupt the flow of the prevailing winds and cause them to most of their moisture on the slopes of the mountain ranges reaching the province, casting a shadow over much of The northerly location and isolation the weather systems of the Pacific cause Alberta to have a dry with little moderation the ocean. Annual precipitation from 300 millimetres (12#160;in) in the to 450 millimetres (18#160;in) in the north, in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains rainfall can reach 600 millimetres annually. [ 8 ] [ 12 ]

In the summer, the average temperatures range from 21 °C (70#160;°F) in the Rocky Mountain and far north to 27 °C (81#160;°F) in the dry prairie of the The northern and western parts of the experience higher rainfall and evaporation rates caused by summer temperatures.

The south and east-central portions are to drought-like conditions sometimes for several years, although these areas can receive precipitation. Alberta is a sunny Annual bright sunshine range between 1900 and hours per year. Northern receives about 18 hours of in the summer. [ 11 ]

In southwestern Alberta, the winters are frequently interrupted by dry chinook winds blowing the mountains, which can propel upward from frigid to well above the freezing in a very short period. one chinook recorded at Pincher temperatures soared from °C (−2.0#160;°F) to 3.3 °C (38#160;°F) in one hour. [ 8 ] The around Lethbridge has the most averaging 30 to 35 chinook days per while Calgary has a white only 59% of the time as a result of winds. [ citation needed ]

Alberta is mostly covered by forest and has a subarctic climate. The area of southern Alberta a semi-arid steppe climate the annual precipitation is less the water that evaporates or is by plants. The southeastern corner of part of the Palliser Triangle. greater summer heat and rainfall than the rest of the and as a result suffers frequent yield problems and occasional droughts.

Western Alberta is protected by the and enjoys the mild temperatures by winter chinook winds. and parts of northwestern Alberta in the River region are largely parkland, a biome transitional prairie to the south and boreal to the north.

After Southern Central Alberta is the most region in Canada to experience Thunderstorms. some of them are frequent in the summer, especially in and southern Alberta.

The region the Calgary–Edmonton Corridor is notable for the highest frequency of hail in which is caused by orographic from the nearby Rocky enhancing the updraft/downdraft cycle for the formation of hail.
