After a relatively calm Sunday, the Prairie region sees storm risk return for the holiday Monday.

"A sinking trough from an upper level low in Hudson Bay will move over northern B.C. and northern Alberta Monday, bringing scattered, non-severe storms, and some stronger storms to the northern foothills," Weather Network meteorologist Kevin MacKay says.

Such storms that do turn severe will be marked by heavy rainfall and small hail.

That same trough will sink southward for Tuesday, bringing a widespread chance of showers, ranging from moderately heavy on the northern regions of Saskatchewan and Manitoba and the northern foothills, to light and brief for Calgary.

Much of the Prairies returned to seasonal values by Sunday, save for Manitoba, which will see a return to seasonal Monday, with heat warnings already ended Sunday.
