WATCH BELOW: RAIN TIMING

Friday carried some storm risk for the Prairie region, and it returns once again Saturday as a system passes the region.

However, most places where storms are possible don't presently look likely to see storms turn severe, though those that do pop up will feature heavy rain and strong winds.

RISKPR

Heavy downpours have the potential to cause floods and water pooling on roads, and it is recommended that drivers adjust their speeds based on weather conditions.

As for showers, they'll be scattered across the region, with the heaviest rains on Saturday in southwestern Alberta along the foothills, with scattered showers and storms over most southern and central parts of the Prairie provinces. For Sunday, however, a warmer and drier pattern beckons.

Check back frequently as we continue to monitor these changing conditions closely.
