A warm and calm morning in Edmonton with some showers falling to the east and northeast of the city.
It won’t be a complete washout of an afternoon.
But, we WILL see some increasing cloud and there MIGHT be a few showers that pass through the city late this morning or through this afternoon.
Temperatures and wind will be highly dependent on that precipitation.
I’ll go with a high of 16 C. But, we could end up a couple degrees on either side of that depending on the timing of the showers (if we get any).
Wind will be light for much of the day. But, it’ll get a bit gusty on the edges of the shower cells.
All in all…not a bad day in the Edmonton region.
Areas to the south and west have less of a precipitation risk today.
Scattered showers are most likely in areas of eastern Alberta from Medicine Hat north towards Smoky Lake.
As well, there’s a decent chance of a few showers in the Grande Prairie and Slave Lake regions.
Overnight, it’s the Whitecourt/Slave Lake region that has the best chance for some showers/rain.
The weekend looks great. Just a slight risk of a shower in the Edmonton region early Saturday morning.
(I’m tempted to completely leave that out of the forecast.)
Otherwise: partly cloudy and a high in the 15 C to 19 C range Saturday.
Sunny with a few clouds and a high near 20 C Sunday.
Monday should be up around 20 C as well. and THEN…things take a bit of a turn.
Cloudier, a chance of rain and cooler temperatures likely for Tuesday-Friday.
Daytime highs probably sit in the 10 C to 15 C range.
Warmer air looks set to roll in just in time for the May long weekend.
