You probably know the drill by now.

For the third (third!) time over one week, Environment Canada has placed Calgary under a severe thunderstorm watch, as clouds are brewing in the city.

“Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail, and heavy rain,” the release states.

The last severe storm was only three days ago, when loonie-sized pieces of hail came down on parts of Calgary and the surrounding area.

Thursday and Friday are both expected to see chances of rain, hail, thunder, lightning, and likely some other frightening things, while Saturday, Sunday, and Monday are forecasted to be beautiful summer days.

So, yeah… if Mother nature could go ahead and make up her mind already, we’d really appreciate it.
