WARMTH RETURNS TO ALBERTA, SEVERE RISK CONTINUES IN SASKATCHEWAN AND MANITOBA

After several days of underwhelming temperatures, Alberta finally gets some love for Canada Day, the beginnings of a gradual recovery that begins with daytime highs finally reaching the 20-degree mark for many places.

Heavy rain is en route to Edmonton with the chance of funnel clouds. Regina also gets some rain that will taper off on Wednesday.

PR ICONS

Manitoba, on the other hand, not so much with the moderate temperatures. They're set to stay very firmly in the 30s, and feeling close to 40 for the coming days with the humidity.

Manitoba and northwestern Ontario are also once again the focus of severe weather risk Wednesday.

Prairie Risk Wednesday

On Thursday, higher amounts of energy build in southern Manitoba and it's going to be a scorcher. There is the chance of showers for central and southern Saskatchewan throughout the day. Thursday continues to be hot for Manitoba and cools as we head east.
