Tuesday, June 10, 2014, 7:13 - Wondering what you missed overnight or what you can expect for the day ahead? 

Here's your weather briefing for Tuesday, June 10. 

1. High heat sparks thunderstorms in the Maritimes

"New Brunswick was downright toasty yesterday, with cities reaching 30°C or above," says Weather Network meteorologist Brett Soderholm. "St. Stephen was the national hotspot at 31.9°C."

Localized thunderstorms popped up in Fredericton and Moncton, causing quick downpours and lightning through the afternoon hours.

"Rain will push into southwestern New Brunswick and southern Nova Scotia this afternoon, with amounts generally less than 10 mm. PEI should only see trace amounts," Soderholm adds.

2. Fog affects travel in Newfoundland and Labrador

Dense fog over parts of Newfoundland and Labrador have resulted in some flight delays.

"Newfoundland will remain unsettled and cool today, with drizzle and light rain for the eastern portion of the province," says Soderholm. "A messy/unsettled Father's Day weekend is currently forecast for the Atlantic."

3. Enjoy the sunshine today, Ontario

Sunshine and above seasonal temperatures dominated much of southern Ontario on Monday and these conditions are expected to continue today.

"There's a possibility for an isolated non-severe thunderstorm today in extreme northwestern Ontario as a cold front will be slowly moving through," Soderholm says. "Rain will push into southern Ontario tomorrow morning, with the possibility for a thunderstorm."

4. Temperatures dip across parts of the Prairies

Isolated thunderstorms popped up in southern Alberta and Saskatchewan yesterday, prompting severe thunderstorm warnings. Hail and strong winds were reported.

Rain will continue in central portions of Saskatchewan and Manitoba today with up to 20 mm possible as the low pushes east.

"Thunderstorms are expected along the cold front in northeastern Manitoba by the evening hours tonight," Soderholm says.

Meanwhile, "Alberta will remain below seasonal (arguably chilly) with the possibility for an isolated thunderstorm along the foothills, and to the north of Edmonton. Isolated showers are also expected Calgary," adds Soderholm.
