I don't know, it just seems like "irregular" weather is pretty "regular" for Edmonton

I don't know whether to hope you catch one on film or not.

I remember the big one as I was literally blocks away. That hail was ridiculous. Made the hail this morning seems like confetti by comparison. So I doubt anything too big will happen but who knows.

Last night Lethbridge and the surrounding area got smashed by multiple tornadoes and funnel clouds and very large hail. Thankfully nothing touched down in any major centres however a couple smaller towns reported a tornado going through their towns (Bow Island, Vulcan, Taber). It was crazy. It was the biggest hail I've ever seen in my life (Some were just over golf ball size). And right now it looks like round 2 is about to hit us.

I've been lucky enough to catch seven on film. Even if there's no funnel clouds, I just like taking pictures of the cloud formations.

thanx for the pic 420. Update it as it comes closer!

Speaking of 420.. seems like a perfect evening to get 'buzzed' and watch the storm

I work near 106 and Jasper.

Pretty sure the building was hit this morning. Saw a bolt and heard the crackle even. It was WEIRD!

Are you in the North? I was working up in the NE a few hours ago and things were looking scary. I just got home in the SE and we're just getting a light shower with the odd thunder crack.

Take those clouds and double it thats what it looked like to the East yesterday after the storm passed through Lethbridge. It looked like a nuke went off.

I'm glad I check these boards all the time cause I had no idea what was going on haha.

Here in Morinville, its nice & sunny. The clouds to the west are the same as 420 posted. When I woke up, it was just starting to rain (late morning) & didn't last more then 5 minutes.

The weather sure has been strange lately. I drove down to Calgary on Thursday & when I got there, I was pelted with hail. When I was coming home on Sunday (7pmish), I got caught in a crazy storm between Airdie & Red Deer..had to pull over. Golf ball sized hail, hard rain, crazy lightning. Then it just stopped & started all over again when I got to Devon.

The absolute loudest thunder i've ever heard in my life this morning, it had to be within 200 metres. But the rain subsided at least an hour ago and it looks to be clearing to my south.
But I live in Lewis Estates, so that sucks haha.
haha, I work on the corner of 108th street and 102 Ave. That lightning hit the Norquest building across the street

Isn't it the dark gray clouds we should be worry about. There can't be much wrong with a nice big white one.

This is nothing compared to last year. It rained pretty much the whole month of June, tons of lightening, and hail. Check back at 07's weather
