 The prevailing wind direction in the spring is from southwest to northeast in most of Alberta. An exception is in the far north of Alberta where cold, dry air from the continental polar and arctic air masses blows from southeast to northwest.

Mean wind speed varies from between 18 and 20 km per hour in the southwest corner of Alberta to less than 8 km per hour in the mountains.
