It's going to be a bit of everything weather-wise this weekend. 

"Pretty much the majority of the prairies," shared Amanda Prysizney with Environment Canada, "at least the southern prairies, is in for a fairly unstable weekend."

"Today, starting off the day is nice and sunny and warm but there is a low-pressure system just over the border in Montana as well as a weak trough over southern Saskatchewan. As the day progresses, you'll see an increase in cloudiness. Starting off with kind of a mix of sun and clouds and then some showers and possibly thunderstorms developing towards the afternoon and into the evening."

The unsettled clouds and rain will continue into the weekend. 

"Especially in the afternoons," she added. "In the mornings, you might see a little more sun but generally especially in the afternoons and evening, that should be fairly cloudy and showery off and on. Typical summer showers and perhaps the odd isolated thunderstorm. Nothing in the way of severe thunderstorms."

While it may be best to pack an umbrella with your sunscreen if you're heading out camping this weekend, Prysizney shared that they are not expecting significant rainfall.

"It's not an organized strong low-pressure system that is going to sit over the area and dump rain continuously. It's not that type of weekend, somewhere in between."

Yesterday was the first day of summer and it looks like this one should be fairly average with no major anomalies. 

"It looks like it should be a pretty normal summer in southeastern Saskatchewan for at least the next four weeks."
