Calgary could be seeing some stormy skies tonight and tomorrow, at least according to Environment Canada’s forecast.
Thunderstorms are a risk as early as late afternoon today, continuing into the night and potentially showing up again on Friday afternoon.

- Chuckegg Creek Wildfire nearly as large as Edmonton and Calgary combined

Mixed in with local smoke, a 30% chance of precipitation, and winds of up to 25 km/hour, the next two days in YYC are looking to be all over the map as far as weather is concerned.
The only thing missing is snow, and while a June snowfall isn’t entirely out of the realm of possibility for Calgarians, highs of 25°C on Thursday and 23°C on Friday ensures that we’ll at least be safe from Old Man Winter making an unseasonal return to the city.
If we can make it through the rest of this work week, we’ll be rewarded with highs of 27°C on Saturday and Sunday and sunny skies for the next five days.
Besides, a little rain never hurt anyone, right?
…Though we’d suggest avoiding the golf course during those potential thunderstorms — just in case.
