9th August 2010 - Monday

High: 27.0
Low: 7.5
Days we didn't see any sun: (49)
Days swept snow from drive (0)
Days shovelled snow from drive (14)

It was bright and sunny start with virtually no cloud. Temperatures were around +14at 8.30am and it felt cool, but pleasant. It was quite a breezy day and the breeze made it feel very pleasant as the temperatures rose to around +27. It was very hot out of the breeze though.

We currently have a Severe thunderstorm watch for most of Southern Alberta, including: Calgary, Okotoks, High River & Claresholm

Severe thunderstorms possible for this afternoon and evening.

This is an alert to the potential development of severe thunderstorms with large hail and damaging winds.

Strong thunderstorms are possible this afternoon into the evening as Alberta still remains under an unstable and humid airmass. Thunderstorms will develop along the foothills and move quickly off to the northeast. The main threats with these storms are locally heavy downpours, large hail, and strong gusty winds.

We did get a brief storm with some very heavy rain at around 6pm. It cooled down overnight and we had another couple of showers.
