Saturday saw storms turn severe once again in southern Saskatchewan, with a tornado reported in the Assiniboia region, though no reports of damage or injuries yet. Sunday will see the threat for severe storms pull back, largely confined to southern Manitoba and northwestern Ontario, with a small slice of eastern Saskatchewan as well. The temperature divide will also shrink, though Manitoba will remain humid. What to expect, below.

SUNDAY: CHANCE OF SEVERE STORMS CONFINED MOSTLY TO MANITOBA

Southern Saskatchewan once again saw tornado warnings issued Saturday evening, as severe storms turned tornadic.

Come Sunday the severe weather threat will scale back a bit, confining mostly to southern Manitoba and parts of extreme southeastern Saskatchewan, spilling into northwestern Ontario. Eastern Saskatchewan and along the foothills in Alberta may see non-severe storms develop.

Temperatures will level off somewhat across parts of the Prairies, though it will remain warmer and humid in Manitoba. Daytime highs in the province will stay a few degrees below 30, but will feel closer to 40 with the humidity. Meanwhile, Alberta and Saskatchewan will be more comfortable, with temperatures within the low- to mid-20s across most of the southern areas.

BEYOND: STILL MORE SHOWERS AND STORMS

Beyond the weekend, conditions will improve Monday, but another system will bring showers and thunderstorms across the southern Prairies Tuesday and Wednesday. The cool pattern continues across Alberta through at least July 10, but watching the potential for somewhat warmer weather between then and the 15th.
