While Airdrie has yet to see its first rainfall warning of the season, nearby areas, especially to the east of the city are under not one, but two weather alerts. 

According to Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), areas encompassing Rocky View County, including Beiseker, and Irricana, can expect heavy rain and winds.

"Rain will begin this evening and continue through Tuesday night. Widespread rainfall totals of 50 to 70 millimetres are likely. Locally higher amounts of up to 100 millimetres are possible," the rainfall warning stated.

Rain will taper off on Wednesday. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Watch for possible washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts.

A wind warning has also been issued for the area.

"Strong winds from the north with gusts to 90 kilometres/hour are expected to develop on Tuesday morning. The strong winds will slowly weaken off in the late afternoon to early evening hours," the wind warning stated.

Damage to buildings, such as roof shingles and windows, may occur. Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage. Utility outages may also occur.

The weather warnings are in place for much of Southern Alberta. 

"Motorists, especially in high-profile vehicles, may expect hazardous driving conditions on highways subject to strong crosswinds."

Locally, Airdrie can expect up to 25 millimetres of rain by Wednesday.
