Currently the temperature is 12 C at the Edmonton Blatchford station, with winds of 16 km/h with gusts of up to 27 km/h coming from the east, southeast.

Today will be average at best. Nothing too crazy but warm enough with a daytime high temp of 20 degrees. Yesterday was absolutely fantastic. It was the first day that it looked like summer might actually be on the horizon.

The forecast says we have a 60 percent chance of showers in the late afternoon, maybe even the risk of a thunderstorm, and I totally agree with that!

Temperatures for the rest of the week are below average and we could see some showers. So it looks like the forecast is back to normal for the long weekend.
