Edmonton Weather on July 10: Another Record Hot Day

Edmonton Weather on July 10: Another Record Hot Day

Edmonton reached a record high temperature on Monday, tied a record high temperature on Tuesday and is expected to break the record high temperature of 33.0 degrees Celsius set on July 10 (2001).

This afternoon temperatures are expected to range from 34 to 37 degrees Celsius, with humidity around 40 degrees.

I think we will PROBABLY see a high of 35 or 36 degrees Celsius. I do want to point out, however, that meteorologists from Environment and Climate Change Canada are projecting a high of 37 degrees Celsius for Edmonton.

That would be close to the highest temperature ever recorded in Edmonton: 37.2 °C on June 29, 1937.

So…we’ll see how it goes. It’s already started VERY warm. Temperatures didn’t even drop below 20 degrees Celsius last night/early this morning.

From today it starts to cool down… but only a little bit.

I think it will still be around 30 degrees Celsius on Thursday afternoon and between 25 and 28 degrees Celsius on Friday through Sunday.

There is a high chance of thunderstorms in northwestern Alberta this afternoon. There is also a risk of severe storms with the potential for large hail.

These storms will move into the Fort McMurray area later tonight.

We will also be watching the hills for the development of some storms this afternoon. Given the amount of energy available to those storms as they move east, they could travel a long way.

There is a chance of thunderstorms in the late afternoon/early evening for the Edmonton area, with a LOW potential for severe storms (but some strong wind gusts are possible).

There is also a chance of storms in the hills on Thursday in the afternoon. These storms could also affect the Edmonton and Red Deer regions in the late afternoon/early evening.

For the LONG TERM: After a bit of a break from the heat this weekend, temperatures look set to rise again next week, with highs around 30 degrees.
