Default Alberta can get some strange weather but this beats all.

Calgary is stunned by SNOWFALL in the middle of summer | Daily Mail Online



Funny part is the news was carried in a UK on line news paper.

The weather in Calgary can drive a person crazy. Sometimes you never know what you're going to get on any given day. Snow in August, a "heat wave" in January. We have to be prepared for anything 'cause if you wait ten minutes, it may change again.

The Edmonton tornado of 1987, an event also known as Black Friday to Edmontonians, was a powerful and devastating tornado that ripped through the eastern part of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and parts of neighbouring Strathcona County on the afternoon of Friday, July 31, 1987. It was one of seven other tornadoes in central Alberta the same day.[5]
The tornado remained on the ground for an hour, cutting a swath of destruction 30.8 kilometres (19.1*mi) long and up to a 1,300 metres (0.81*mi) wide in places, and peaking at F4[5][6] on the Fujita scale. The tornado killed 27 people, injured more than 300 people, destroyed more than 300 homes, and caused more than CAD332.27 million in property damage at four major disaster sites. The loss of life, injuries and destruction of property made it the worst natural disaster in Alberta's recent history and one of the worst in Canada's history.

Yep Alberta gets all kind of weather.
That's a really big, powerful, violent twister like the big ones they have in the USA tornado alley in Oklahoma & Kansas & Texas.
