Currently, it is sitting at 14 C at the Edmonton Blatchford weather station with winds blowing at 11 km/h out of the east, southeast.

There are still more thunderstorms in the forecast for tonight and possibly tomorrow.

I know we got rain out here but I didn’t hear any thunder. My morning coworker said that she was woken up by thunder at 5 am

That is too early in the morning, I think. No one wants to be woken up by roaring thunder, that’s just not cool.
