A look at Thursday’s weather by Environment Canada.

It’s 11 C at the Edmonton Blatchford weather station with 31 km/h winds out of the west northwest.

The rainfall may be over (for now), but that doesn’t mean we’re done with spring weather just yet. Thursday is going to be full of both sunshine, with a high of 19 C, and serious winds climbing to 40 km/h. Those winds will persist overnight, with a low of 10 C. Friday will be a repeat of the previous day’s conditions, with a high of 19 C and winds up to 40 km/h, with some clouds mixed in during the late afternoon.
