A look at Saturday’s Edmonton weather by Environment Canada.
It’s 10 C at the Edmonton Blatchford weather station early Saturday with 16 km/h winds from the west, northwest.
The welcoming hive of Edmonton and area, the province really, is growing with an influx of Northwest Territory wildfire evacuees forced away from their homes more than 1,450 km north of here. The worker bees are helping in any way they can to stem the sting of this seeming recurring summer threat, the shocking uprooting, the sickening forced exodus. Rains locally this week are more than welcome but the weekend forecast contains sunny skies before showers are set to return Monday evening for a good span of next week. May we manifest the same for our wildfire-ravaged N.W.T. and B.C. neighbours, forced to pick through so many unfair unknowns, stricken by such unfair plights.
