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

The heat warning has been lifted as we head into a cooler weekend. This morning we will have sunny skies with increased cloud cover as the day goes by. Cross your fingers we get a thunderstorm, not the kind of storm that causes flooding and hail damage, just the kind of storm where it’s fun to watch and we get a nice refreshing rain with a bit of a cool down in the temperature.

The weather this weekend will still be quite nice just not quite as warm. Temperatures in the high teens and low twenties are in the forecast with sunny skies throughout the weekend. A slight chance of showers on Saturday.
