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

Lady Bey would stomp it out, looking fierce, but let’s be honest that takes talent, one that I don’t have. I will look awkward and windswept with the rest of the normal humans.

I may have to put rocks in my son’s pockets today so we don’t lose him in the 40 to 60 km/h winds. The break from the heat and humidity will be nice. The forecast is calling for a high of 22 degrees and mostly sunny skies.

Tomorrow we could see some showers and a high of 20 degrees with wind gusts up to 60 km/h in the morning. Let’s get out there and practice our Beyonce hair tosses but don’t throw out your neck. Start slow.
