Strong storm risk for Edmonton area on Wednesday

Many areas of Alberta are expected to see a return to stormy weather on Wednesday as the atmosphere is primed to support severe storms.

Storms could produce heavy rain, damaging wind gusts, and hail for parts of the province, including the Edmonton area.

Warm temperatures and high humidity will contribute to Wednesday’s thunderstorms in Alberta, and a front crossing the Rockies will be the trigger needed for storms to fire up through the late afternoon.

Stayed tuned to YEGWeather.com to keep updated with the conditions throughout the day.
