The Victoria Day long weekend is, sadly, half over. It's been a generally cool one, but there have been some bright spots, although many parts of Canada have seem rain of some kind.

Here's a coast-to-coast roundup of what's to come.

Atlantic Canada

St. John's, Nfld, had a great Sunday, hitting 18.8C. Sun and cloud is the story throughout Newfoundland Sunday.

New Brunswick, had a light rain Saturday, thanks to a lingering trough, and more rain is expected to fall throughout the three Maritime provinces, lasting through to Monday.

More rain is expected in the beginning of the week for Atlantic Canada, thanks to an approaching offshore low.

Quebec and Ontario

The rains of the past week were mostly a thing of the past Saturday in Ontario, although showers lingered in eastern Ontario and heavy rain fell on central and eastern Quebec, along with isolated thunderstorms Saturday evening.

A frost advisory is in effect for parts of western Quebec near the Ontario border.

That's due to below-seasonal temperatures, which made for a chilly Saturday morning in Ontario.

The province had another chilly morning Sunday, and there's a risk of isolated showers in the south.

Prairie provinces

Temperatures were in the mid to high teens in the Prairies, but scattered thunderstorms made an appearance through southern Alberta and Saskatchewan Saturday evening and overnight.

There's more rain in the forecast Sunday, with the heaviest amounts falling in Saskatchewan south of Regina.

A special weather statement is in effect for parts of southern Saskatchewan due to the potentially heavy rainfall, while Manitoba has warnings for flooding, high waters and the potential for shoreline ice buildup in some areas.

British Columbia

The B.C. Interior saw some isolated thunderstorms on Saturday, but the province saw comfortable temperatures in the mid-to-high teens, along with scattered showers.

The risk of thunderstorms continues for the interior on Sunday.
