Alberta is known for not having the nicest weather over the Victoria Day weekend, but it looks like Edmonton may be in luck this year.
Victoria Day falls on May 24 in 2021, living up to Canadians’ nickname of the “May two-four” long weekend.
Sunshine and a high of 20ºC are in the forecast for the weekend, with some rain on Monday thrown in for good measure.
