September 26

A weak shortwave passed through from the NW this afternoon after 2pm, kicking up a few thunderstorms along the way. Nothing severe, but we did get a quick 10mm of rain and even some ice bits along with a stiff breeze for about an hour as it passed over. Radar showed what may have been a good patch of hail north of Rimbey, but it had settled down by the time it got here.
After the wave passed over, the skies completely cleared out by 6pm, leaving a spotless sky for the Harvest moon’s rising.

    The center right side shot from west of Red Deer was at 2:20pm, looking right at Red Deer to the northeast. This would have been just after it passed over Poplar Ridge. The wind hit here at 2:30, with a 52km/h gust at 3pm.
