It seems the wild weather wasn’t quite ready to mosey on.
Environment and Climate Change Canada issued a severe thunderstorm watch for Calgary at 1:38 p.m. Friday, with the possibility of “torrential rain and large accumulations of small hail.” The watch was lifted shortly after 8 p.m.
Southern Alberta has contended with more than a week of unsettled weather, with severe thunderstorms regularly popping up in the afternoon.
On Thursday night, a sudden storm swept through northwest Calgary, flooding numerous roads. Social media posts showed deep accumulations of hail on Nose Hill Drive N.W. and stranded cars near Canada Olympic Park.
And last Saturday, a tornado rated at EF4 touched down between Didsbury and Carstairs about 60 km north of Calgary, damaging or destroying 12 rural homes. Researchers say it was the most powerful twister to hit the province in almost 40 years.
