Annnnnd it's gone. What an anti-climatic thunderstorm/tornado watch (not that I wanted one, but was expecting something more than dark clouds).

Another day to keep a look out for severe weather.




10:08 AM MDT Thursday 13 July 2017
Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for:
•City of Edmonton - St. Albert - Sherwood Park

An unstable airmass over Alberta will set the stage for thunderstorms this afternoon and this evening. Some of these thunderstorms will have the potential to become severe. Hail to the size of golf balls or perhaps even larger, as well as wind gusts in excess of 100 km/h, are possible with these severe thunderstorms. North of Edmonton, the risk from the thunderstorms will include very heavy rainfall in excess of 50 mm.

In addition, later this afternoon and this evening, it appears some potential for a few tornadoes will exist, primarily south of Edmonton. As the day wears on and the scenario becomes more clear, parts of the watch may be upgraded to a tornado watch.

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. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!

Weather turning serious at the moment:

2:08 PM MDT Thursday 13 July 2017
Tornado watch in effect for:
•Lac Ste. Anne Co. near Cherhill and Glenevis
•Lac Ste. Anne Co. near Mayerthorpe and Sangudo
•Lac Ste. Anne Co. near Onoway and Lac Ste. Anne
•Parkland Co. near Entwistle Fallis and Tomahawk
•Parkland Co. near Spruce Grove and Stony Plain
•Parkland Co. near Wabamun Carvel and Keephills
•Sturgeon Co. near Legal and Mearns
•Sturgeon Co. near Morinville Volmer and Big Lake
•Sturgeon Co. near Rivière Qui Barre and Villeneuve
•Yellowhead Co. near MacKay Wildwood and Evansburg

Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms which may produce tornadoes.

Severe thunderstorms have begun in west-central Alberta. A few of these severe thunderstorms will have the potential to produce tornadoes, baseball-sized hail, and destructive straight-line winds in excess of 120 km/h.



Everybody stay safe.

People are going to stop taking these warning seriously.

I spent over an hour clearing my garage for the tennis ball sized hail coming to save my brand new truck. It didn't even rain where I was... Yet my Vivent was telling me there was a tornado on the way....

Don't shoot the messenger as I'm only posting warnings from Environment Canada.

For the lazy, theres a link for the active and predicted future radar. Looks like the worst will miss Edmonton, heading west of Spruce/Stoney into Slave Lake, Whitecourt, and Athabasca. Although that may change in the future of course

Sometimes weather isn't 100% accurate. Better safe than sorry.

Nothing wrong with posting these. Keeps people informed at least. Keep it up

No offense, but I don't trust the weather network. The Government Weather site has been much more accurate for me.

Fair enough, I added a second link, can compare both but weather network seems to give a future prediction while government weather site does not, the both seem similar at the same time frame though so take is as you will

Don't get me wrong, looking at lots of weather models helps predict things but for imminent stuff I use the Government Weather site. Thanks any ways

Fair enough, looking at how they operate it seems the government weather site is good for immediate stuff, so when new cells pop up thats where to go, then weather network seems to have a future version to see where existing cells estimated direction is. Between those two and just keeping an eye on the sky hopefully any extreme weather should be spotted and prepared for. Anytime

What's wrong with leaving it outside and getting it paid off?

First thing is people need to understand the difference between a watch and a warning. Watch is the potential for sever weather, warning is ongoing.

Secondly, even if you're under a warning, the storm cells are still isolated. 80% of the warned area may not get hit, but the 20% that does can be damaged.

As always with weather, better safe than sorry. Just keep an eye on the sky. Doesn't mean you have to run to the basement the second a thunderstorm warning pops up or anything, just be aware.
