Yeah man I had to close all the windows the water was getting inside haha

I managed to get a few shots in. Looking at those clouds, I knew it would be coming down good. And it did.









(These are in the Whyte Ave/75th Street area)

I thought about grabbing my camera, in hindsight I wish I did because 18 floors up and right by the river valley another 200 feet down, it's an odd view to see that much rain.

It's pretty cool actually it looks like just streaming lines of water, gives a whole new appreciation of how much goes down in a pour like that instead of just being eye level on the ground.

Your camera takes amazing pictures. What kind is it? I'm impressed, great detail.

Cole must have missed his target, because here comes Round 2! Some weird thunder- like the footsteps of a giant. Some kids playing on their front lawn just ran screaming inside.

Just a heads up, from the downtown area, I see a huge cloud in the southwest end of the city that looked from this far as the start of a large funnel cloud. I stress looked because it retreated back up, but it looks like ugly weather heading that way.

Matter of minutes, because once I cleared my camera ready to snap it (3 minutes) it's turned back up. For a couple minutes it looked very ominous though.

I live in Clareview and hardly got any rain. Wasn't even enough to keep my lawn wet.

We need the rain, it has been a beautiful 26 to 30 degrees for over a week.

My lawn could use a good soaking.

Yes even Edmonton was getting over 30 degrees, very unusual for this early in the summer.

I am getting the rain but not the torrents of those pictures, in fact it seems to be dying down, though I wish it would pick up a little.

I think it ran it's course before it got here.

Exactly, it was a torrential pour, but only for a matter of minutes. We need more. It cooled down and I was loving it for 10 minutes, then it heated back up.

(Downtown - Oliver area) for me anyway.

Nikon D40.

Got it last year, and even though it comes with a considerable price tag, it was worth every penny. I love it.

(I spent approx $600 for it)

You guys should change this thread title to summer weather GDT or something.

Severe thunderstorm warnings for Edmonton folks. Keep your heads up.

That definitely was intense with the rain and hail for a bit there today (University area). I swear the lightning struck near my block.

We've had them before, most recently during the late winter snow storms.
