This is the nicest day of the week: Here is your Edmonton forecast

EDMONTON — Morning sun will give way to some afternoon clouds in the Edmonton area.

But precipitation should hold off until overnight/early Wednesday morning.

AND… the wind will be much calmer than Monday (10-20 km/h range).

The forecast high of 21 is right around average and a lot warmer than Wed/Thu.

 

A low pressure system will sweep across north-central Alberta late tonight bringing a risk of showers.

That precipitation should be in east-central and northeast Alberta by early Wednesday morning.

 

Cooler air moves in on a brisk NW wind Wednesday.  Gusts near 50 km/h in the Edmonton area.

Afternoon highs drop into the mid-teens Wed/Thu before rebounding to 20 on Friday.
