A fast-moving storm blew through the city and southern part of the province early Wednesday morning and showers are expected to continue on and off throughout the day.
CTV Calgary Meteorologist Kevin Stanfield says early-morning thundershowers across southern and central Alberta were the herald for a low-pressure center that will drive a good dose of rain across parts of Alberta on Wednesday.
Forecast models are indicating that Calgary will see about 5mm of rain on Wednesday and up to 21 mm by Friday.
Showers will develop into steadier rain overnight.
