A storm’s a brewin.
Calgary, and much of southern Alberta, is expected to see some severe thunderstorms today and tomorrow.

Tuesday afternoon is forecast to see heavy rain, strong winds, and small hail, though the storm is expected to get more severe throughout the night.
The Weather Network stated that the shift comes as a result of a strong secondary low developing throughout the night combining with an upper-level trough to create a wind shear — a change in wind speed or direction within a short distance of atmosphere.
The post also notes that there is “the potential for some tornadic activity” on Wednesday morning.
If facing a tornado, Albertans should take shelter in a basement or the lowest level of the house, in an interior room, closet, or hallway, according to the post.
It is also recommended to shelter under a sturdy piece of furniture and to cover yourself with blankets.
Rainfall in Alberta could see up to 75 mm through Friday in some pockets, potentially bringing some relief to the wildfires that still rage up north.
