I have vivid memories of days with similar humidity/temperatures. I don't know where Classen is getting his statistics from. Bah. I refuse to believe it. There's one day during the summer of 2007 that really sticks out in my mind.

I'll miss you office AC.



Pardon my ignorance but what's the point of doing this?
So they don't overload the system and cause a mass blackout like what happened on the eastern seaboard a few years back.

BC absolutely loves it though.
We pay them massive amounts of money to use their power and they have so much to spare.

We're talking about an area that didnt have its own fire station until maybe 10 years ago? Didn't have its own recreational complex until a couple years go. Still doesn't have a police station in the area...

Severe thunderstorms may produce a tornado this evening.

Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms with the potential to produce tornadoes.

These severe thunderstorms will also have the potential to produce very large hail..Flooding rain..Deadly lightning and powerful winds. Use this time to secure outdoor property and to ensure family members and co-workers are prepared to take action should the severe weather approach.

Environment Canada continues to monitor the situation closely for severe thunderstorm development and possible tornado warnings. Please continue to monitor your local media or weatheradio for further updates.

Should severe weather approach or if you feel threatened do not wait for warnings to take action..Take shelter immediately.

Should you spot a funnel cloud or tornado...And only if it is safe to do so...You can call 1-800-239-0484 to report your sighting. Please note this phone number is for reporting severe weather only.

A warm, moist airmass has set the stage for severe thunderstorms this evening. Thunderstorms have begun to develop along a cold front and are moving through the Capital region. These thunderstorms could become severe giving large hail, heavy rain and wind gusts over 100 km/h. Areas to south of Edmonton appear to have the greatest potential for funnel clouds and the possibility of a tornado

Cool novel response. If youre talking about rolling blackouts, maybe stick to that instead of blaming particular neighbourhoods for them...

Got stuck on 97ave westbound between Rossdale and 109th street for over an hour with no AC and no water in a truck. One car was getting through per light sequence. Can't wait to get my other truck back. That was hell. I was counting down the minutes to hit the shade from the tunnel.

An indian lady got herself caught in the intersection, so she decided to back up without looking behind her and drove right into a van. It was a complete gong show.

City of Edmonton - St. Albert - Sherwood Park
8:17 PM MDT Tuesday 02 July 2013
Severe thunderstorm warning for
City of Edmonton - St. Albert - Sherwood Park issued

At 8:10 PM MDT meteorologists are tracking a line of severe thunderstorms extending from Duffield to Dapp to 10 km southwest of Leduc to 20 km east of Bluffton. These thunderstorms are moving to the northeast at 40 KM/H and have the potential to produce large hail, strong wind gusts and heavy rainfall.

Take cover, if threatening weather approaches, within a sturdy building, away from windows.

Strong wind gusts with large hail can damage property, break windows, dent vehicles and cause serious injury. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods.

Avoid driving through water on roads. Even shallow fast moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle away.

Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes.

In Canada, lightning kills up to 10 people every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors.

Environment Canada continues to monitor the situation closely. Please continue to monitor your local media or Weatheradio for further updates. If you would like to report severe weather, you can call 1-800-239-0484 or send an email to storm@ec.gc.ca.

Updated or ended by 9:40 PM MDT.

Crazy winds on west end now. Opened up every window in the house. No AC could match the cooling power of Mother Nature.

Feels sooooo good. Cats are happy as all hell too.

Not even a breeze at my place. 29 degrees in here. Getting all the bonus humidity without any of the actual rain.
