Sunday was a miserable day weather-wise in Red Deer, but we got off somewhat easy compared to some of our neighbours to the north.

Red Deer received about 20 mm of rain between Sunday and Monday, according to Environment Canada. Slave Lake saw 71 mm of rain during that same amount of time. Athabasca was soaked with 64 mm while Sherwood Park received 63.

It was also breezy in Red Deer on Sunday with wind speeds reaching 50 km/h. Wind gusts reached 94 km/h in Fort Assiniboine, 93 km/h in Slave Lake and 91 km/h at Edmonton International Airport.

Tuesday’s forecast for Red Deer calls for a mix of sun and cloud with wind gusting to 70 km/h and a high of 19 degrees. Rain is expected again on Wednesday and Thursday.
