SUNDAY: EAST COOLS OFF, LINGERING RAIN, SEVERE STORM POTENTIAL
The slow-moving low in the north will continue to bring rain in northern Saskatchewan and Manitoba, with precipitation expected to continue through Monday night. Meanwhile, a boundary will push into the southern half of Manitoba in the morning, bringing showers and a risk of afternoon thunderstorms.
There is a risk for storms to reach severe levels in the extreme southern areas, along the U.S. and Manitoba borders mostly. Potential hazards include strong wind gusts, heavy rainfall and small hail.
Temperatures will plunge again Sunday, but this time in the eastern Prairies, while Alberta warms up slightly. Daytime highs will drop several degrees in parts of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, staying below seasonal in the low- to mid-20s range. Most places in Alberta will reach the 20s, but will still be below seasonal.
As well, the upper level trough will bring more snow to the very high elevations of the Rockies, with snowfall already accumulating Friday. The northern Rockies may see freezing levels drop to 2,200 metres.
