Is it raining in Edmonton at the moment?

Hi, I'm going to Edmonton for the first time next week and I've looked at the online weather Bereau and they have forcasted showers. Is it raining there at the moment and do you think it will affect my trip?

Thanks kindly

You can find the Environment Canada current weather conditions and 7-day forecast for Edmonton at weatheroffice.gc.ca/city/…ab-50_metric_e.html

I wouldn't worry too much about the forecast beyond 3 days though, as it is very unreliable further out. And "showers" means occasional light rain, not pouring all day; not really something to worry about.

It is more likely to snow than rain, to be honest. It is supposed to rain Tuesday, and snow on Wednesday. Today, it is 14C and sunny.

Just pack warm layer clothing and you will be fine.

I understand your concern. There are many members on TripAdvisor who seem to ask the "weather question."

Please note Country-Wife's link to the weather forecast webpage.

Other than that, I am happy to report that the Easter weekend was "glorious" and sunny here in Edmonton. It is also presently sunny and very warm here on the southeast part of town.

There is a saying about weather in Alberta. If you don't like the weather, wait an hour, it'll change. It can change drastically very quickly. You don't plan on weather here, you plan for it. Bring a wide selection of clothes.
