Late Week

The late week forecast is unclear at this point. A strong longwave trough[1] will come onshore late in the week. This trough may generate a series of thunderstorm days across the Canadian Prairies and Northern US Plains. At this point the location and timing of storms is not known, but more details on this situation will be available as the week progresses.


  1. A longwave trough is a large-scale dip in the jet stream that is usually associated with strong weather systems and/or severe weather outbreaks.  ↩
