Calgary could see another thunderstorm this weekend

Mother Nature isn’t quite done with us yet.

Calgary just bore the brunt of a devastating storm this past weekend that saw flooding, huge pieces of hail, and thunder and lightning light up the skies — and that might not have been the last of it.

The Weather Network’s seven-day forecast is showing a risk of thunderstorms starting this Friday and continuing into the weekend.

Before we get there, though, Calgary is set to see a 70% chance of rain for Wednesday afternoon, and a high of 17°C on Thursday accompanied by a mix of sun and clouds. 

Friday’s daytime high will reach 19°C though will also see a POP of 40% and around 1 mm of rainfall.

Saturday ramps things up both in temperature and in precipitation, with around 5 mm falling and a high of 23%.

If the city isn’t completely destroyed by Sunday, Calgarians will be able to enjoy a high of 24°C and just a 40% chance of showers bringing around 1 mm. 

Pretty much par for the course when it comes to spring weather out here in the Prairies — just make sure you don’t leave those sunroofs open this weekend, hey?
