- Lull in active weather across the region Sunday after a showery Saturday
- Thunderstorm risk mostly severe and concentrated in Saskatchewan Monday, though some isolated severe chance along the International Border
- New system develops in lee of Rockies to start new week, bringing widespread showers and potential for severe thunderstorms Monday/Tuesday
THUNDERSTORM RISK MONDAY
Unlike Saturday, which saw widespread showers, Sunday is looking generally drier, with a relative lull in active weather, with storms returning Monday.
For southern Saskatchewan, Monday, sees a widespread risk of storms, but they are expected to be generally non-severe, though with some sever chance along the international border.
Aside from that risk, the rest of the week is presently looking somewhat quiet, with temperatures around the seasonal mark.
"This comes as a result of the jet stream becoming more zonal over the next few days, flattening out with no large ridges or troughs," Weather Network meteorologist Brett Soderholm said early Sunday.
By the week's end, temperatures will become above seasonal once again, with a slight ridge building and allowing for abundant sunshine.
