Dad's Day: Rain vs. sun, find out what gift Mother Nature will bring

Saturday, June 15th 2019, 10:43 am - A look at what to expect for Father's Day across Canada

We're expecting a 'quiet' weather pattern across most of Canada for Father’s Day, except for a couple of areas where active weather may put a damper on your outdoor plans.

Current forecast models show signs of showers and thunderstorms (albeit much more isolated than recent days) across parts of the Prairies, with a cool and unsettled pattern continuing into next week.

Southern Ontario, however, has a higher risk for rain and thunderstorms Sunday, with a slow-moving boundary stalled just south of the border. If this boundary pushes north, we'll have a greater chance of rain on Father's Day. The Weather Network will continue to monitor this forecast closely, and bring you the latest updates, here.

Meanwhile, if you're looking for some sweet sunshine for your BBQ party, you may want to head north!

"Yellowknife has one of the best 7-day forecasts across Canada - abundant sunshine and temperatures in the 20s," says Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham.

For a complete look at the national forecast, be sure to watch the video that leads this article.
