After severe storms Monday night, a summer chill continues on the Prairies

The summer chill covering the Prairies will continue with near- to below-seasonal temperatures common across the region for the remainder of the week. The storm system that brought severe thunderstorms to southern Saskatchewan on Monday night will head east on Tuesday, bringing a chance for rain to Manitoba. We’re watching the potential for another system toward the end of the week. More on the Prairie forecast, below.

MONDAY NIGHT: SEVERE STORMS MOVE THROUGH SASKATCHEWAN

We saw several tornado warnings across southern Saskatchewan on Monday evening as severe thunderstorms fired west of Regina.

While all tornado warnings have since expired, severe storms will continue into the nighttime hours. The strongest thunderstorms could produce damaging wind gusts, large hail, and heavy rainfall.

TUESDAY: MILD TEMPERATURES WITH RAIN IN THE EAST

Highs in the mid- to upper-teens are likely across the Prairie provinces during the day on Tuesday.

THROUGH THE WEEKEND: TASTE OF FALL AT TIMES FOR REMAINDER OF AUGUST

Temperatures will remain near- to below-seasonal for many spots on the Prairies through the end of the week. In fact, the region will see a taste of fall at times for the rest of August.

The unsettled pattern will continue in the short range followed by a brief break mid-week. Another significant system will develop over Alberta late Thursday and Friday, and then track east across the Prairies on the weekend with widespread rain and thunderstorms.

Another significant system is possible early next week.
