SUNDAY + BEYOND: RISK FOR STORMS IN NORTHERN PRAIRIES, PROVINCES HEAT UP

As the front pushes further east, effectively wiping out the heat in Manitoba, there will be a lingering chance for thunderstorms in parts of central and northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Any storms that do fire up in the afternoon should remain below severe criteria. However, they may still bring strong wind gusts and heavy rainfall.

With a ridge building in the western Prairies, the storm-threat calms and warmer temperatures arise. Temperatures on Sunday will be around the mid-20s in most areas of the Prairies, with a humidex making it feel in the higher-20s.

Monday things start to really heat up for Alberta, with temperatures and humidex making it feel in the 30s, a first for the province this season.
