Trying to plan ahead? Don't worry. We have all the information you need to know about the weather today. 

Here's your weather briefing for Friday, June 13.

1. Ontario not in the clear yet

After a couple of days, of lightning, heavy rain and localized flooding the situation is improving for only some parts of the province. A special weather statement was issued for the Ottawa regions, including Kanata, Orleans, Richmond and Metcalfe. Between 20 and 30 mm of rain are expected as a moist airmass continues to travel through Ontario and toward Quebec.

Fortunately the system should taper off this evening, leading to better conditions for the Father's Day weekend.

2. Chances of thunderstorms in the Prairies

Southern Saskatchewan and even some of southern Alberta are showing a chance of thunderstorms as a system makes its way through the region. While the worst of it should stay south of the border, there is the possibility of severe thunderstorms south of Regina.

It hasn't been too bad for Alberta this season. The rainfall totals so far are mostly under the normal totals.

3. A better day for B.C.

Today is looking a little better for British Columbia. The thunderstorm forecast for Friday is not as widespread as yesterday.

Isolated showers are expected over Vancouver as it remains a little unsettled in the area. And just in case you're planning ahead you might want to include an umbrella among the possible Father's Day gifts as it's looking cloudy with a chance of showers for Vancouver on Sunday.
