Still cooling below normal in Calgary, but otherwise fair!

A quieter day today, as Mother Nature reloads and places her attention elsewhere.

Yesterday's peak gusts in Calgary pushed to 63 km/h, and our high popped to 13 C. The instability associated with the low passing by has dispersed, but leaves us largely cloudy for the day; similar to yesterday, Calgary will experience periods of sunshine, similar to yesterday. We may also cope with a few pockets of shower activity, but they'll largely remain benign here.

Further north, an unstable boundary delves through Hinton, sagging down toward Red Deer and across from there into Saskatchewan. Along that convergence zone, there's potential for storms wherever showers develop.

Afterward, we follow along with the zone of uplift; the low in the Pacific will deepen and bring the jet southerly by tomorrow, driving heavier rain showers into parts of our province. Calgary is likely on the outskirts of this and could see three millimetres of rain, and though thundershower potential exists, it's somewhat remote so far; meanwhile, Medicine Hat is aiming for a double-digit rainfall total, with potential for severe weather.
