Edmonton weather for Aug. 9: Sunny and warm afternoon, cool and windy Tuesday

EDMONTON — A bit of a roller-coaster for temperatures until the end of the week.

After hitting a high of just 20 C on Sunday, Edmonton gets back to the mid-20s today and then slips to a high near 20 Tuesday.

 

This morning’s temperature dipped into single digits in the city for the first time since June 20 (49 days ago).

Looks like we’re back to morning low in the 13 to 16 degree range for the next few mornings.

 

Sunny for much of today, and then some increasing cloud around supper time.

There’s a slight risk of a shower in the area late this evening and/or overnight.

No significant rain is expected in the Edmonton region.

 

Skies clear by late Tuesday morning. Wind will likely be the biggest issue Tuesday.

WNW 20-30 km/h sustained wind with gusts to around 50. Gusts near 60 are possible early in the day.

 

After tomorrow, we should get into a sunny pattern and a warming trend.

Highs are forecast to be in the 30-degree range by the end of the weekend and through the weekend.
