The calendar says June, but the weather in Alberta doesn’t seem to be listening.
A severe storm brought flooding, hail, and even funnel clouds to parts of the province Saturday on Saturday.
Neighbourhoods in the Calgary area were blanketed in hailstones, with several locals reporting their home and car windows were broken.

Little video of the golf-to-pingpong-to-tennis ball sized hail in my neck of the woods. I have no windshield left, nor siding on my western wall.@TD_Insurance @TiffanyGlobal #yycstorm pic.twitter.com/CLke9g9uSY
