Edmonton Weather: Sun, Clouds, Rain Only Oilers Spirit

Content of the article

Currently Saturday morning, it is 4 C at the Edmonton Blatchford station, with winds of 9 km/h coming from the west, southwest.

Oh, it’s sunny… it’s raining SPIRIT from the Oilers! And there are a few bugs floating around on those sporadic sunny days, but some of us just have Oilers FEVER!

All that to say there will be sun and cloud, highs of 14C on Saturday in those parts as Oil earns a second of three wins over the Kings ahead of Game 4 in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Forecasters are eyeing a high of 12C with cloud cover on Sunday, but hardened fans who have suffered from the Oilers’ playoff drought since 2006 are looking to the skies, hoping those spirited wins continue.
