Calgary to see a full week of sunshine, but first a chance of thunderstorms

Jun 4 2018, 3:33 pm

Summer is planning to hit Calgary in full force for the first full week of June — but not before a slight chance of thunderstorms will need to be weathered.

According to the weekly forecast from Environment Canada, Calgary has a 30% chance of precipitation throughout the day today, along with the risk of a thunderstorm in the afternoon and early evening.

Winds are expected to range from 30 km/h to 70 km/h earlier in the day before calming down (if you can call it that) to 20 to 40 km/h around noon.

The temperature is expected to drop down to a low of 6°C on Monday night, but Calgarians will likely wake up on Tuesday to a beautiful morning, and a stunning week to follow.

Temperatures throughout the rest of the week will hover between a high of 23°C and 26°C, and the forecast shows nothing but sunshine straight through to Sunday.

Not a bad way to start off the first month of summer, even with the slight hiccup at the start of the week.

Just make sure to keep off those golf courses on Monday — you’ll have plenty of time for a round in the days that follow (without the dangers of lightning striking that 5-iron).
