Edmonton weather: Autumn in Edmonton sure is gorgeous

Article content

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

Thursday morning temperatures at the Edmonton Blatchford station measured 6.0 C with 11 km/h winds out of the southwest.

Wow, September just keeps on giving. Are we sure it’s really Autumn because it still feels like summer out there. Forecasters today are calling for a high of 20 C under skies, but you can expect some wind gusts of 20-40 km/h along with it. The trees, the leaves, that crisp air later in the evening as the sun goes down — there’s a lot to like about Autumn in Edmonton. Temperatures look like they’ll remain above average or near average all weekend with plenty of sun so be sure to get out there and take in all those fall colours.
