Edmonton weather: A mixed bag Monday of clouds, sun and maybe rain

Article content

A look at Monday’s weather by Environment Canada.

It’s 9 C at the Edmonton Blatchford weather station with 8 km/h winds out of the west northwest.

Did you know we set a record high on this day last year of 28.9 C?

The good news is, it will be much warmer out than what we experienced over the weekend. The bad news is, the winds will still be breezy, and there may be some rain tonight and over the next couple days.

Monday’s temperature is expected to reach a high of 21 C, and on Tuesday, it should reach a high of 22 C, but there is a chance of showers. The rain will show up Wednesday, and it looks like it may rain over Father’s Day weekend.

We’re getting a mixed bag of everything it seems this week!

If you’re going to any of the Oilers watch parties tonight, it may be a good idea to layer up, and bring an umbrella just in case.
