Severe weather in Edmonton

Weather for 2007-06-21

The weather sure does change fast out here – I guess it’s because the land’s fairly flat, and there’s no big lake nearby. We got a thunderstorm ‘watch’ for this region a few hours ago, when it was still bright and sunny out. Sure enough though, storm clouds rolled in, and about 10 minutes after it got dark, the hail started. It only lasted for about 5 minutes or so, but during that time it sounded like we were under attack!

That’s some of the hail collected from around my house, next to a good ol’ quarter. As you can see, most of it was pea to gumball-sized hail. The Weather Network has reported hail from up to nickel-size in the area. It’s safe to say that I’m glad I didn’t go for a run today! Though it looks like it’s over now (it’s back to being sunny and calm), there are thunderstorms in the forecast for tomorrow as well. Lastly
