Wednesday, September 3, 2014, 7:16 AM - Curious about what was happening weather-wise while you were sleeping or wondering what you can expect for the days ahead?
Don't worry, The Weather Network has you covered. This is your morning briefing for Wednesday, September 03.
1. Wet Wednesday
It's not looking like a great day for parts of Atlantic Canada.
"Scattered thunderstorms will accompany the cold front as it slides through the Maritimes on Wednesday," said Brian Dillon, meteorologist at The Weather Network. "The main threat is localized heavy downpours and breezy conditions.
And as the cold front continues to track east, the same conditions will be felt in Newfoundland overnight tonight and into Thursday.
2. A bounce-back for southern Ontario
It's going to be a better day for those near the Greater Toronto Area as a high pressure system moves into the area bringing drier conditions. The day will feel much more comfortable, with humidex making the day feel near 30.
Northern Ontario won't be as lucky. Thunderstorms will move into the area on Thursday as a cold front moves out of the Prairies.
As we head toward the weekend the risk of severe thunderstorms in Southern and Eastern Ontario will return. While it's too early to say how severe the thunderstorms might get, the fact that Friday could see temperatures of up 32 degrees before humidex could bring a bout of nasty weather.
3. A chilly day for the Prairies
It was a cool morning for parts of Alberta. Some places in the area saw temperatures near -1 to -3C once windchill is taken into consideration. In fact some places with elevations above 2000 m have the chance for accumulating snowfall today.
"A developing low will slide over Alberta today with rain and isolated thunderstorms throughout the Southern Prairies from the Rockies to Southern Manitoba," Dillon said.
Clearing skies will move into Alberta and Saskatchewan on Thursday.
4. A good weekend for the west coast
The sun makes a return to British Columbia, bringing with it drier conditions. Temperatures start to warm into the weekend with clear and sunny skies. Some parts of BC like Price Rupert do have a chance of rain with cooler temperatures.
