Wednesday afternoon could bring back the risk of severe weather across southern Alberta. Starting in the afternoon, moisture makes its way over the mountain parks and moves east into the region.

Isolated thunderstorms may pop up through the afternoon and evening.

Extreme southern and southeastern Alberta could see the greatest risk of large hail, heavy rain, and even tornado development.

Scattered showers continue overnight before tapering off late Thursday morning.

General rainfall amounts for areas south of Red Deer could range between five and 10 millimetres, but as much as 50-75 mm may fall under a stalled thunderstorm.

Here’s the five day:
