Edmonton weather: Gusting winds to flush smoke away in 19 C

Article content

A look at today’s Edmonton weather by Environment Canada.

Sunday morning temperatures at the Edmonton Blatchford station measured 14 C with 11 km/h winds out of the west, northwest.

Widespread smoke from wildfires south of the border — some of the worst in Oregon where Alberta fire crews have been dispatched to help — is expected to burn off later this morning, dissipating by tonight for clear skies with an overnight low of 8 C. That’s all with the help of winds gusting up to 50 km/h. Pull up your masks and hang onto your hats!

With just a few more summer days left until fall, on Tuesday, embrace what you can of today’s high of 19 C. While Tuesday opens her arms to 17 C, the rest of the week will hover around 20 C. Please September, link arms with October to bring us such warmth for the next month. October can end in such an icy snit sometimes!
