A look at today’s Edmonton weather by Environment Canada.
Yesterday was another soggy one. Around 23 mm of rain fell in the Edmonton area. In parts of southern Alberta, there were tornado warnings issued when one was spotted near Alliance, east of Red Deer.
Today, I’m hoping, things will be a bit calmer. Maybe just some light drizzle in the morning or an afternoon rain shower.
Looking ahead to the weekend, the weather might actually start to feel a little like summer. Temperatures in the mid-twenties are in the forecast with sunshine for a few days. This is welcome news after so much precipitation. I’m ready to ditch the raincoat and slap on some sunscreen.
Today: Mainly cloudy. 30 per cent chance of drizzle this morning then 30 per cent chance of showers this afternoon. Fog patches dissipating this morning. High 20. UV index 6 or high.
Tonight: Partly cloudy. 30 percent chance of showers early this evening. Low 14.
Tomorrow: A few showers ending in the afternoon then a mix of sun and cloud with 30 per cent chance of showers. Risk of a thunderstorm late in the morning and in the afternoon. Local amount 5 mm. Wind becoming southeast 20 km/h gusting to 40 near noon. High
