A low pressure system over North Dakota continues to spread rain and isolated thunderstorms over southeast areas of the province.

As of 4 a.m. the heaviest rain was concentrated across the Estevan and Carlyle regions, pushing north towards Moosomin.

As the system stalls south of the U.S. border, the rain will persist over southeastern regions of Saskatchewan into Monday night, especially along the Trans-Canada Highway.

General rainfall amounts are now expected to range from 25 to 30 millimetres.

The system should begin to weaken Monday night and into Tuesday as it moves east into Manitoba.
