A look at today’s Edmonton weather by Environment Canada.

On my walk yesterday I could see buds on the trees while listening to ducks quacking on the pond, birds singing in the trees and bugs buzzing all around, tell-tale signs that nature is waking up from winter and spring has sprung.

Today looks like one of those days where you get a little bit of everything. The morning and afternoon are looking quite nice and then the clouds will roll in and we have a 30 per cent chance of showers in the late afternoon. We will reach a daytime high of 14 degrees.

In the evening the chance of showers increases to 60 percent. Rain turns to flurries during the overnight period and a low of 2 degrees.

Thursday looks a little cooler with a high of 7 degrees with a mix of sun and cloud.

All in all, it’s exactly what we should expect for April in Alberta. Although a really good rainy day would be great to wash away some of the leftover dust and gravel from winter and freshen things up a little.

Today: A mix of sun and cloud. Becoming cloudy this afternoon with a 30 percent chance of showers late this afternoon. Wind becoming south 20 km/h late this morning. High 14. UV index 4 or moderate.

Tonight: Cloudy. 60 percent chance of rain showers changing to 60 percent chance of flurries or rain showers overnight. Wind northwest 20 km/h gusting to 40. Low plus 2.

Tomorrow: Clearing near noon. Wind northwest 30 km/h gusting to 50. High 7. UV index 4 or moderate.
