It will be a rainy day across northern Alberta and Saskatchewan.

From Fort McMurray to Peace Country, 10 to 20 mm of rain is expected today. By Monday morning an additional 20 to 25 mm is on the way. Unsettled weather will continue through half of the work-week.   

This is good news for the Fort McMurray area where the fire risk was recently very high.

We are expecting thunderstorms to develop across extreme southeast Saskatchewan and southwest Manitoba.

Once the storms arrive this evening, they are expected to be far below severe limits.

There may be an odd strong wind gust.
