It looks as though fun isn't the only thing forecasted for Canada Day this year in the Foothills County region.

According to Environment & Climate Change Canada meteorologist Stephen Berg, the weather for the day looks a bit unsettled.

"Looks like the high temperatures will be in the low to mid-20s. Kind of in the 21 to 24 range, and then low temperatures will be around 10 degrees or so. Looks to be unsettled with the possibility of showers and maybe a thunderstorm. So, it's going to be a mix of sun and cloud for the most part, it looks like. Maybe some cloudy periods overnight, so that'll be something to keep watch for."

Berg reminds people that if a thunderstorm does end up rolling through while the Canada Day activities are still being enjoyed, it's best to remember that if thunder roars, go indoors.

"That's the main way to stay safe during thunderstorms. Temperatures won't be all that hot, so that's a bit of a relief, and make sure to keep watch for watches and warnings for when they are updated and follow proper safety precautions if there are any severe thunderstorm watches or warnings issued," Berg explains.

While it is still a bit too far out to tell with any certainty, Berg says it is possible that we could receive a thunderstorm watch or warning alert, given that it's Alberta in the summertime.

"These warnings and watches do get issued fairly frequently during the summer, so just keep alert."

While the forecast may change a bit before Canada Day, Berg says there is currently a 60 per cent chance of rain occurring that day.

"That's a pretty decent chance of some rain in some parts of Foothills County, so that's just something to be aware about and might need to put on a raincoat if it's just rain."

Berg reminds everyone to keep an eye on the safety tips that show up at the bottom of every severe thunderstorm warning, so they stay safe.
