EXTENDED ACTIVE WEATHER COVERAGE: Tune in to The Weather Network for live updates on the summer storms in your area. Our team of reporters and meteorologists in the field provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date coverage.


Residents across Atlantic Canada may want to keep an umbrella close over the next couple of days as unsettled weather is forecast to continue for most areas. 

"Unsettled weather is expected to continue throughout the region for the next 48 hours after a showery day across the Maritimes and parts of Newfoundland," says Weather Network meteorologist Monica Vaswani.

As a result of the rain, temperatures are expected to remain slightly below seasonal before slowly warming into the work week. 

An upper level low is to blame for the active weather and it isn't going anywhere soon, adds Vaswani. 

"The atmospheric feature is expected to remain anchored over the Atlantic region primarily over Newfoundland and a result scattered showers will likely continue right through to Thursday," she says. "The Maritimes will likely clear out by Wednesday with lingering showers on Tuesday."

Thunderstorms can't be ruled out either however they are expected to be non-severe in nature.
