TUESDAY: STRONG WINDS FOR ALBERTA AND THUNDERSTORM RISKS FOR MANITOBA
The trailing upper low atop Northern Saskatchewan seems to be staying put through Wednesday. This could be bringing heavy rain to the far north and severe storms to Southeastern Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario.
Thunderstorms and funnel clouds could pop up around Manitoba, but the tornado risk will diminish into the evening.
Alberta doesn't get left out either, with a trough stretching west to the Rockies, resulting in strong winds across Province.
Funnel clouds are possible, but not likely, in central and southern areas of the Prairies. And that trough remains in the north area throughout Tuesday and Wednesday.
Temperatures will be fairly consistent across the Prairies Tuesday, with widespread digits in the low- to mid-20s in all three provinces.
LOOK AHEAD: HEAT FOR THE SOUTH, RISK OF RAIN FOR CENTRAL AND NORTHERN AREAS
The southern Prairies will remain mostly dry on Wednesday, but central, northern Saskatchewan and Manitoba still have some unsettled weather. The risk just east of the Rockies develops late Thursday and into Friday, with possible widespread rain and storms for the northern areas.
Western Alberta has a risk of strong/severe storms on Thursday, with a more significant threat for severe weather for southern Saskatchewan Friday afternoon/evening, shifting into southern Manitoba Friday night.
Heat will return late week for southern Saskatchewan and Manitoba, while the unrelenting cool pattern continues to dominate in Alberta.
