Edmonton weather: Hey, who turned down the heat?

Also, thunderstorm, maybe? Possibly? Chances are

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

I guess that’ll do it for the heat for a bit. We had our time in the sun, and it was nice, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy waking up to a cooler house this morning.

Also, we may or may not see some thunderstorms this afternoon possibly, maybe, we’ll see. Forecasters are calling for a (medium) risk of thunderstorms starting at around noon today and carrying until about 7 p.m. tonight. The clouds sure were dark yesterday but our house in Mill Woods was spared mostly from any real rain or thunder, even. I know Shadow was happy about that.

Anyway, doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing much in terms of hot weather if long-term forecast is any indication as forecasters are calling for lots of clouds, cooler temperatures and plenty of rain. Just in time for me to take a week off for vacation — every time.
