Saturday morning temperatures at the Edmonton Blatchford station measured 9 C with 15 km/h winds out of the west.
There won’t be heat like that stunning Friday evening but chances are we will embrace 16 C this swat-filled Saturday. Sorry to break it to you if you missed it… mosquitoes have landed. Still, their pestering and attempts to bite are the healthy alternative to sitting inside, staring at screens of much more sinister energy-sucking devices. Drop so much toiling in phones, seeking validation, letting reality wither around you when instead, you get to be inside nature, catching sun on this mixed-with-cloud, possibly rain later, day. Grassfires keep punching up so moisture in the forecast is welcome, despite its further accommodation of skeeters, too.
