The average daily temperature range in January is -19° to -9° C (-2° to 16° F), and the average range in July is 11° to 24° C (52° to 75° F).
The average annual rain and snowfall is 460 mm (18 in). Precipitation mainly falls in summer, which produces excellent growing conditions for grain, oilseed, and pasture.

At 684 square km., Edmonton is also one of the largest cities by area in North America - larger in area than Chicago, Philadelphia and Detroit.
