After a stormy and active weekend across Saskatchewan, the risk for thunderstorms shifts into the start of the work week.
Severe thunderstorms moved through the province this weekend with unconfirmed reports of a tornado near the Mossbank area on Sunday.
Heat and humidity will continue to fuel the thunderstorm risk across the Prairies for the start of the work week with Monday’s afternoon highs hovering in the mid-twenties in both Regina and Saskatoon. Westerly winds will peak at 20 km/h by Monday afternoon.
The threat of a non-severe thunderstorm lingers across the Prairies into Monday evening.
A chance of a thundershower is possible early evening in both Regina and Saskatoon.
Parts of southeastern Saskatchewan may see some of the storms turn severe overnight.
Moist and warm air will continue to keep the Regina area unstable and increase the chance of thunderstorms on Tuesday.
Conditions appear to stabilize for central areas including Saskatoon where the forecast calls for a mix of sun and clouds on Tuesday and highs near 22 degrees.
The return of sunny conditions hits on Wednesday but the blast of these summer-like conditions won’t last long.
The chance of spotty showers returns Thursday as a system tracks across central and southern communities.
After an unsettled week across the province, the sunshine is on track to return just in time for the weekend!
Schedule some outdoor activities into your weekend ‘to do list’ as the sunshine re-appears by Friday.
Conditions are also expected to warm-up by Sunday with temperatures reaching the high twenties in both Regina and Saskatoon.
