Excessive heat in Calgary straight into the weekend

Hot weather is sticking around in the five-day forecast, and with it, we'll remain under the heat advisory.

Early in the noon hour, showers began to propagate along the foothills; with them, severe thunderstorm watches have built up just north of Calgary:

The showers associated with "wave one" have already dropped off; they're rolling through dry air masses and running out of steam. Still, there's more potential later this afternoon, and the watches aren't likely to drop just yet.

The blocking high continues; with flanking lows, the ridge we're caught under isn't going anywhere. Embedded storms are possible in this synoptic environment, but are quite unlikely, as our capping inversion is strong.

We'll have a better look at storm potential as we close in on those days, which for now, only show a ~10 per cent chance.
