The risk of thunderstorms isn’t over quite yet, Calgary.
While weather forecasts in Alberta are always something of a toss-up, it’s hard to ignore The Weather Network when they predict thunderstorms four times over the next six days.

The province’s storm chasers will have a busy week starting on Friday, when a risk of thunderstorms will be accompanied by a 90% chance of precipitation and up to 15 mm of rainfall.
That same risk returns on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Saturday will actually feature a nice mix of sun and clouds and Monday will calm things down with light rain.
Winds will be strongest on Friday with gusts of up to 45 km/hour, though that speed drops to the 20s over the weekend and the teens by the start of next week.
Wednesday will be one of the rainier days of the week, bringing another 10 to 15 mm down on Calgary by the time Thursday shows up with just a chance of showers.
That all being said… the weather in Calgary is a fickle beast, so be sure to take all forecasts with a sizeable grain of salt!
