Edmonton weather: Your weekend has a mix of sunshine, rain and wind

Article content

A look at Friday’s weather by Environment Canada.

It’s 10 C at the Edmonton Blatchford weather station with 35 km/h winds out of the west northwest.

A little known fact for you to start your morning. On this day last year, we set a record of 29.4 C.

That won’t be the case today.

The sun will be shining, but we will be once again dealing with those howling winds. The winds will be gusting to as high as 50km/h this morning, but dying down to a slightly-less gusting 30km/h winds the rest of the day.

As we head into the weekend, Saturday the temperature drops to just 8 C with periods of rain. So, if you’re heading to any of the Oilers Watch Parties, layer up you may want to bring an umbrella, just in case if you’re outside.

Temperatures rise to 15 C on Sunday, and the howling winds we’ve dealt with the last few days will be gone!
