Many Canadians are waking up to the last day of the long weekend.

Here's what you can expect, coast to coast, on Monday.

Atlantic Canada

Seasonal temperatures will feel warmer in the Maritimes thanks to the humidity Monday. Seasonal also in Newfoundland, but with high pressure moving in and a wind shift, they'll be cooling down by Tuesday, with St. John's only expected to reach a high of 14oC.

As for rain, lingering showers in the Avalon should push out by Monday afternoon, with fairer weather for Newfoundland Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Maritimes, meanwhile, will see scattered showers Monday, with a chance of non-severe, isolated thunderstorms in some areas.


Ontario

Warm and humid temperatures ahead for southern Ontario on Monday, with no real cool down until mid week.

Thanks to that humidity, and a system moving into the province, there's a widespread risk of thunderstorms throughout the day Monday.


"While the majority of these storms will be non-severe, we can't rule out a couple of isolated severe storms creeping across the border into extreme southwestern Ontario," Weather Network meteorologist Kelly Sonnenburg said Monday morning. "The major threat with these storms will be wind and hail."

Storm threat continues into Tuesday morning, but should push out by the evening.


And beyond, Wednesday is looking to be pleasant and fair for southern Ontario.

For the north, temperatures will be at, or a bit below, seasonal level, with some rain continuing into Tuesday.

Prairies

An upper level trough is bringing the risk for scattered thundershowers through the Prairie provinces once again Monday.

Any storms that do pop up are expected to be non-severe, although some isolated storms in western Manitoba could be severe.


Here's the non-severe risk for Tuesday.


Temperature-wise, it'll begin cooling down into the coming week, with wet mid-week conditions expected in southern Alberta and Saskatchewan due to an incoming system from the Gulf of Alaska.

British Columbia

It's been a rainy weekend for large sections of the coast, and there's still up to 30 mm to fall by Tuesday.


The Interior is at risk of storms in the afternoon, but the risk on Tuesday will be more widespread, covering even Vancouver and the Island.


Temperatures will start off the week below seasonal, but should have recovered by the end of the week.
