Climate

Invermere is said to be almost "protected" by Mt. Nelson to the west which towers over the community. Invermere has a temperate, semi-arid climate, characterized by warm summers and cold winters. The Rocky Mountains to the east shield Invermere from the worst effects of Arctic air in winter, although extreme cold spells do occur on occasion. Spring arrives earlier than on the plains to the east of the Rocky Mountains. Although warm, summers are variable, with weather alternating between hot, dry spells and cool, showery periods.
