Edmonton weather: Windy, cool, cloudy, and did I mention windy?

A look at today’s Edmonton weather by Environment Canada.

Saturday morning temperatures at the Edmonton Blatchford station measured 12.3 C with 23 km/h winds out of the northwest gusting to 33 km/h.

Not to put too fine of a point on it but it is not nice out there right now. Not nice at all.

The wind is howling at the moment and there certainly seems to be some rain on the horizon. Somehow, someway, forecasters say things will improve. By 2 p.m. the clouds are expected to pull apart and we should see some sun in the area and a modest high of 18 C. That wind is expected to stick around all day, however. Boo wind. Seriously, boo.
