Edmonton weather: Sunshine in September gives us all something to smile about

Article content

I’ll admit, I was a bit cranky this morning when I piled into the car to find frost on my front windshield. I am not ready for what’s to come.

However, my spirits were quickly lifted upon seeing what’s in store for today and this weekend as forecasters are calling for plenty of sunshine and highs above or near 20 C. Nothing to complain about there. When that September sun is shining, the bright yellow leaves at this time look especially gorgeous when contrast with the deep blue skies — there’s honestly nothing better.

Fall really is a great time of year isn’t it? Enjoy the weekend 🍂
