Edmonton Storm: Massive Dark, Scary Clouds Over The City Bringing Hail, Rain


If there was ever a certainty in Alberta weather it would be this:

At least once a week one of the major cities (Calgary or Edmonton) is hit with a killer storm. We're talking high winds, torrential rains, occasional hail and a drop in temperature.

Edmonton got one of these good ol' storms Thursday. Edmontonians on Twitter reported green clouds and an abundance of hail. Heavy rains gave drivers trouble, both with poor visibility and flooded roads.

Environment Canada issued a severe thunderstorm warning for much of the area, including Leduc and Red Deer.
