It's been a soggy weekend across parts of the southern Prairies, and the start of your work week looks to be the same.
"A moisture laden low is forecast to remain quasi-stationary in southern Saskatchewan," says Brett Soderholm, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. "Mixing could occur as temperatures dip through the overnights and early mornings, then switch back over to rain."

The system will continue to bring rain and wet snow to the southern Prairies through Monday, before tapering off Tuesday morning.
"The heaviest rain will be along the border of southern Saskatchewan and southern Manitoba, where an additional 30 mm is possible by Tuesday."

Soderholm says the system is also expected to bring gusty winds and cooler temperatures to the region.
Meanwhile, flooding woes continue in Manitoba, where authorities say the Fisher River appears to have crested.
Ice jams along the Birdtail Creek in the western part of the province are also causing water levels to rise, prompting officials to advise residents who live in the area to leave their homes as a precaution.
