Sunday, August 17, 2014, 8:44 AM - The weekend's half over, so if there's sunshine where you are, soak it up.

Here's your coast-to-coast look at Canada's Sunday weather.

Atlantic Canada

It won't necessarily be a deluge, but a big, slow-moving upper low will bring a continual threat of showers and thunderstorms over the next 48 hours, if not longer.

For now, most of the rain seems set to fall in southeast New Brunswick, northern Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.


Ontario

It felt chillier than it actually was in southern Ontario, with gusty winds joining forces with below-seasonal temperatures and cloudy skies to make for a gloomy Saturday.

Those clouds brought rain to parts of the region, falling heaviest on Georgian Bay and the Lake Huron shores.


The skies are clearer today, and although it's still a little below seasonal, it's only by a couple of degrees, and Weather Network meteorologist Monica Vaswani says that could last all the way through to Wednesday.

There's not much in the way of precipitation in store for the south over the next couple of days, and in the northwest, high pressure will keep the region dry until the evening, when showers and the occasional non-severe thunderstorm are expected to begin, lasting on and off into Monday.


For the week to come, those showers will be followed by a minor cooldown, with Thunder Bay being a couple of degrees cooler than average.

Prairies

As with Atlantic Canada, a low pressure system is set to bring showers and storms across parts of the region over the next 48 hours.

However, it's a relatively faster-moving system, and slightly more potent, capable of bringing severe storms through much of southern Saskatchewan Sunday, with the biggest threat being heavy downpours and localized flooding.


On Monday, it's the Alberta foothills that will be more at risk of non-severe weather, although the south is likely to be drier than the north.

British Columbia

Although Vancouver will continue dry, there's a risk of non-severe storms in the southern Interior Sunday.


Overnight, drivers on the coasts and valleys should be mindful of rising fog.
