Sun's out and temperatures are rising in Edmonton today.

After a string of sub-20 days, we'll be back into the low to mid 20s around the region today.

 

Keep an eye on the sky this afternoon, though.  

We'll get some cloud development by mid afternoon and there's a decent chance of some showers and thunderstorms developing late this afternoon.

Storms will likely initiate in the Edson to Drayton Valley region and then push NE towards Edmonton.

There may be some hail and powerful wind gusts with some of these storms.

If the Edmonton metro region gets hit, the most likely timeframe would be 6-10 pm.

 

Partly cloudy with a risk of late-day showers/thunderstorms for both Saturday and Sunday in Edmonton and much of the rest of central/north-central AB.

Temperatures ARE rising.  But, we won't be able to shake the chance of precip for a few more days.
