Edmonton weather: We may be in for a thunderstorm today

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

Well at least it’s not a snowfall warning.

So in the forecast today someone drew a yellow lightning bolt into the sun/cloud graphic and that has me a little excited since we haven’t had a thunderstorm in a little bit.

I love just sitting either in the garage or on a porch watch and listening to the thunder it’s just something I’ve always enjoyed doing.
