[ ] >> Scott: over the last week, the city has been a hub for volleyball with thousands of players here to compete at youth nationals. Roughly 15,000 athletes from more than 1200 teens are competing in national championships. The 12 day event also brings in around 22,000 spectators. Explore edmonton says it's one of the city's biggest economic generators, expected to bring in around $48 million into the city. >> That scene by restaurants, hotels, bars, transit, every business that touches the industry is affected by this event. >> This is one of our bigger events of the year. This 14 a 12 day run. >> Scott: by the time the tournament wraps up its expected about 33,000 nights will have been booked in hotels for that event.

>>> Tomorrow is shaping up to be a very good day for local sports. On top of the volleyball nationals, the edmonton elks are in their preseason campaign with a home game against the saskatchewan roughriders. Kick off his 2:00, meaning you can enjoy that game and make it home warmer to the ice district just in for puck drop in game two of the oilers-stars western conference final. [ ] >> Scott: and it sounds like tomorrow will be pretty good if you're spending the day outside. >> Phil: technically still a slight chance of showers, but very slight as we are seeing. This afternoon we had a few scattered showers off of the foothills, and if you have turned into garden-variety thundershowers. Southern alberta has been different when it comes to active weather, and there is still advisories further to the east, if you're getting further east of vegreville, toward the border with saskatchewan, funnel clouds are still it possibility. Through the evening and overnight, still a few clouds north of us that will cycle through an just be heavy. There is eight slight chance like there was last night of showers, but you're truly going to have to wait until the overnight between saturday and sunday morning to see the risk of rain ramping back up. If you're outside of edmonton, you're talking further to the west, there is an even better opportunity and that's going to extend all the way down closer to rocky mountain house, red deer as well. Scattered showers cycling through the city's general region of the province for sunday afternoon, and if your further south, just outside of red deer, you might even see if you thunderstorms kick off for the same timeframe. Progressing through sunday night into monday morning, we are expecting high pressure to build more back in with clear skies for the region. A few scattered showers further north, but then we are essentially done with the risk, at least for 24 hours or so. As far as accumulation between now and monday morning, maybe 1-2 millimetres at most. More towards the calgary, red deer, medicine hat, and jasper areas in between. Travelling to the mountains over the weekend, raincoat, umbrella, and maybe a slightly more indoor set of plans is not bad idea. If you like the rain, all the power to you, but it could be on the damp side. Still a few degrees below average, but only just. Five is our low in the city of edmonton. Outside the city it could be cooler, but not too bag. Generally speaking its not far off for most of the province for average lows. A few degrees here and there. But it sets us up for an even better daytime high tomorrow. Upping it by around 3 degrees over what we got today, and it's the same story playing out across much of alberta. Over the next few days, temperatures continue climbing. Not a huge improvement on sunday. I still have it at 17, chance of late afternoon showers and thunderstorms in the region, so that might not get back down. There is potential for 18. Back up around 21 next week, but with breezy conditions out of the southwest. Up to 25 for tuesday, however cools up on wednesday with the arrival of showers once again and potential for steady rainfall included by the end of the week. >> Scott: thank you.
