Edmonton weather: Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves on the ground

Article content

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

Thursday morning temperatures at the Edmonton Blatchford station measured 11.6 C with 7 km/h winds out of the southwest.

As if the trees needed anymore help to lose their leaves today’s weather forecast is calling for wind gusts of 30-50 km/h — bye bye leaves. Nice knowing ya. Turns out fall isn’t falling fast enough. Starting at around 9 a.m. the wind is expected to blow basically all day today and into tonight. Temperatures will be near 20 C so aside from the wind it should be a real nice day out there. Perhaps a walk in the ravine is in order. Gotta get those steps in.
