Calgarians will need to watch out for the extreme weather on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, according to The Weather Network‘s most recent forecast, with temperatures hovering around 17-18°C and nearly 40 mm of rain expected to fall over the next four days.

The weekend may actually bring a much-needed respite from the storms, with a sky filled with mainly sunshine on Friday, a high of 20°C, and just a 30% chance of precipitation.

Saturday and Sunday will both feature a 40% chance of showers and 3 mm at the most across the two days, while Monday will arrive with a high of 22°C and sunny skies.

… There is, however, a 20% chance that 1-3 mm of rainfall will come down on the first day of July, but compared to what we’ll be dealing with at the start of this week, we’re definitely not complaining.

It’s something of a hard-learned fact that the forecast in Calgary isn’t ever set in stone, so be sure to keep an eye out for updates and your heads up for any rogue lightning bolts this week, Calgary!
