Edmonton weather: Another day of rain and thunder, then it should clear up nicely

Article content

A look at Tuesday’s weather by Environment Canada.

It’s 10 C at the Edmonton Blatchford weather station with 13 km/h winds out of the northwest.

Tuesday’s forecast starts with the previous night’s showers ending early in the morning, allowing a mix of sun and cloud for the rest of the day, with a high of 18 C, a 60 per cent chance of showers and a risk of thunderstorms, and winds gusting up to 40 km/h. That chance of showers and risk of thunderstorms will persist overnight, with the winds dropping to 20 km/h. They will whip right back up by Wednesday though, climbing to 50 km/h and a high of 18 C — though at least by then we’ll have clear skies and sunshine.

That might all sound a bit confusing, so here’s a simpler forecast: if you’re going outside, bring an umbrella and wear a windbreaker!
