In true Calgary fashion, we saw everything from a heat warning to a severe thunderstorm watch on Monday, with hail and epic clouds making a dramatic appearance in and around the city.
Environment Canada issued a heat warning for the City of Calgary at 4:44 am on Monday, and temperatures reached a high of 32ºC at 6 pm. At 10:30 am, the government website also put a severe thunderstorm watch into effect for Calgary and other areas of southern and central Alberta.
Calgary is expected to see a high of 25ºC by 2 pm on Tuesday, with a risk of thunderstorms beginning at 4 pm and continuing into the evening.
