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

We are finally going to get that one day of summer where the mercury strikes 30 C! But not this day. Next week. And that’s just dandy because this day, we get all the weathers: fog, sun, cloud, possible thunderstorms, winds gusting to 40 km/h.

By the time most of you read this, I will have dashed off an outdoor swim as the fog lifts, the sun shines and gleeful anticipation of lightening and thunder grows. Forecasters estimate the high will hover around 19 C, easing us into 21 C Sunday. Sunny skies for Father’s Day! And then bam, we are in store for 26 C followed by 30 C, Monday, Tuesday.

Aapar Sandhu and Aaneesha Bains pose for pictures at Hawrelak Park after their wedding ceremony on Friday, June 18, 2021 in Edmonton. The elaborate setup is some what unusual and is related to COVID-19 restrictions reducing the size of wedding possible so the couple wanted to have an impressive visual reminder of their day. It is also the exact location that the bride’s parents were photographed at many years ago for their wedding pictures. Greg Southam-Postmedia
