Special Weather Statement issued for the Capital Region:
n abrupt change in the weather is coming to most of Alberta for midweek.

A strong low pressure system is forecast to develop by Tuesday evening west of Edmonton near the BC border. This low will then move east-southeast through the province. As it does so, a big change in the weather is expected to occur.

The heaviest rain will extend from Hinton and Grande Prairie eastward to Edmonton, Cold Lake and Lloydminster. Current indications are that rainfall amounts will be in the 30 to 40 mm range, but some areas of 50 to 75 mm are possible, especially with any thunderstorms embedded in the rain.

That statement is for all of Alberta except for the High Level - Rainbow Lake - Fort Vermilion - Mackenzie Hwy and Fort Chipewyan - Wood Buffalo National Park regions. Looks like it'll be a soaker on Wednesday.

But it's better than the 51.6 cm of snow Cartwright, Nfld. got over the weekend.

I knew it was coming, but I was still surprised the weather was as intense as it end up being yesterday.

Is this the precursor to a major storm season/summer?

My neighbors tree was completely uprooted but the rest of the trees are fine in my neighborhood. Weird. Even our flower pots didn't blow away. Just bizarre.

Yes,there are some signs in the weather that the storm season for this year will be more active than in past years.

Headed to the area this weekend to hit some trails. Was there a ton of rain as well like they thought, or was it mostly just big wind?

Where'd ya go to the can if the Outhouse had no power? Near a tree? Probably a bad idea!



The storm was fairly timid here in the North end. Not as big a deal as I expected anyway. Hope no one got too much damage. Also, regarding that one tree in the middle of a neighborhood that was uprooted and everyone else was fine.....same thing happened to us about 10 or so years ago with a hail storm. Houses on both sides of ours had minimal damage. We ended up getting all siding, shingles, and a double garage door replaced. Good thing we were covered with the $500 deductible as our only real expense.

Environment Canada's summary of the wind and rain storm. Here in Red Deer, the hourly reports gave sustained winds topping out at 86.8 km/h (according to the Red Deer College Science department's 15 minute meteorological readings). EC's historical weather page hasn't been updated all month, so I can't say what the precip. was..

Potential Violent Weather Day across Central Alberta:

WITH THE H7 FLOW NOT PARTICULARLY STRONG, THE DRYLINE WILL LIKELY SET
UP PARALLEL TO THE FOOTHILLS ALONG A LINE FROM EDSON TO SUNDRE AND
NOT MEANDER TOO FAR EASTWARD. WITH SUBTLE COOLING AND HEIGHT FALLS
ALOFT BEGINNING IN THE AFTERNOON, THE MOUNTAIN-PLAINS CIRCULATION
WILL REINFORCE THE MOISTURE TRAPPING UNDER THE CAP AND THE CAP
ITSELF. HOWEVER, WITH STRONG HEATING AND CONTINUED MOISTURE ADDITION
THROUGH EVAPOTRANSPIRATION, THE CAP SHOULD BREAK ALL ALONG THE
DRYLINE DURING THE MID-AFTERNOON HOURS. VERTICAL VEERING OF THE WINDS
AND 35 TO 45 KNOTS OF DEEP-LAYER SHEAR WILL COMBINE WITH EXPECTED
MLCAPE SOMEWHERE IN THE 2000 TO 4000 J/KG RANGE, LEADING TO VIGOROUS
UPDRAFTS THAT WILL QUICKLY ORGANIZE. STORMS WILL TAP THE MOISTURE AND
RATHER STEEP MIDLEVEL LAPSE RATES, AND THUS STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF
PRODUCING LARGE TO VERY LARGE HAIL. AS THE AFTERNOON WEARS ON, A LEE
LOW IS EXPECTED TO SIT SOMEWHERE BETWEEN CALGARY AND EDSON. THE EXACT
PLACEMENT OF THIS LOW WILL BE CRUCIAL, AS EXTRA LOW-LEVEL BACKING OF
THE WINDS IMMEDIATELY TO ITS NORTH WILL ENHANCE THE HELICITY, LEADING
TO A CHANCE OF A COUPLE OF TORNADOES.
AS STORMS MOVE EASTWARD THROUGH
THE EVENING, THEY WILL REMAIN CAPABLE OF PRIMARILY LARGE HAIL BUT
MORE OUTFLOW-DOMINANT STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING DESTRUCTIVE
STRAIGHT-LINE WINDS. THE STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO LAST WELL INTO THE
EVENING HOURS AS A SEVERE BROKEN LINE OR CLUSTER MOVING INTO
SASKATCHEWAN OVERNIGHT. PLEASE NOTE THAT, DUE TO VULNERABILITY
(STAMPEDE) AND THE UNCERTAINTY OF THE SOUTHWARD EXTENT OF THE
EXPECTED THUNDERSTORMS, WE HAVE ADDED A CONDITIONAL MODERATE RISK TO
CALGARY. THIS IS ON THE SOUTHERN END OF WHERE WE EXPECT STORMS MAY
FORM BUT IF THEY DO, THEY WILL BE SEVERE.

Alberta
•Areas: South-central to north-central.
•Timing: Mid-afternoon to late evening.
•Threats: Hail as large as 8 cm, wind gusts to 110 km/h, a couple of tornadoes.




A weak low pressure trough from Nipawin to Pilot Mound will generate scattered showers and isolated non-severe thunderstorms this afternoon and early evening. A low pressure system over Alberta will form this afternoon and, along with a dryline, will initiate thunderstorms along the foothills. These thunderstorms will quickly become severe with an especially high risk of severe weather between Calgary and Edmonton, where very large hail and a couple of tornadoes are possible.



Everybody be safe today and pay close attention to any weather warnings issued as this situation unfolds.

Watches

10:31 AM MDT Sunday 09 July 2017
Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for:
•City of Edmonton - St. Albert - Sherwood Park

Conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may be capable of producing damaging wind gusts, damaging hail and heavy rain.

Severe thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon over parts of Alberta. There is the potential for some of these storms to produce a tornado. If conditions throughout the day become increasingly favourable for tornado development, some of these watches may be upgraded to a tornado watch.

Thunderstorm watches may expand to the south and east this afternoon as storms develop.

Very large hail can damage property, break windows, dent vehicles and cause serious injury. Very strong wind gusts can damage buildings, down trees and blow large vehicles off the road. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes.

Severe thunderstorm watches are issued when atmospheric conditions are favourable for the development of thunderstorms that could produce one or more of the following: large hail, damaging winds, torrential rainfall.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.storm.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ABStorm.

Been checking the radar every 20 minutes or so to make sure I don't get opened up on while I'm barbecuing, and the map looks different every time I look at it.
