A look at Sunday’s weather by Environment Canada.

It’s 10 C at the Edmonton Blatchford weather station early Sunday, with 7 km/h winds out of the east.

There’s a ‘we’ in weather, no ‘I’ in team. We are in this thrilling, tumultuous time together, win or lose, we won!

And the backdrop swirling, never a dull moment here, with possible showers in the afternoon, high hitting 22 C, fostering thunderstorm potential, winds up to 40 km/h. So much potential, none of it lost on us.
