It's cake day. >> Akshay: love it. >> Kelsey: right now, we will go to steinbach, manitoba. It is quiet now. There is a rainfall warning in effect for the community right across southern manitoba. As we are seeing a weather system move its way up from the dakota bringing with it saturated rain. Elsewhere in the country as we slide over to the St. Lawrence area through the gaspe peninsula and into new brunswick. We have thunderstorms pushing through this morning. This is part of a cold front that moves through ontario and québec yesterday. Prompting significant severe weather. It's a different story this morning. You might be wondering why, if it prompted all of that action when it moved through other communities. A couple of different reasons. Partly is that just like anything, weather systems will run out of steam. They will run out of the fuel that they need to prompt severe weather. The other big factor is the time of day. It's early morning right now and temperatures are not at their hottest. When a cold front hits an area as temperatures are still very warm. There's an increased likelihood of that weather becoming more severe. The storms that are pushing in this morning are non-severe. There's a possibility we could see a secondary front moving through. Notice the timing here. 4:30 in the afternoon. Temperatures at their peak. It's very possible we will be talking severe thunderstorms there. Severe thunderstorms are cat categorized not by lightning and thunder. Lightning is something that needs to be treated with a lot of caution. Severe thunderstorms are categorized by hail, heavy downpours and 50 millimeters of rain in an hour or less and wind gusts at 90 kilometres or less. It's approaching the loonie-sized if not big. Yesterday there was tennisball-sized hail reported in parts of ontario. As we head into the evening, you will see the thunderstorms pushing toward nova scotia. As you head farther north, you will see a flipover to steady rainfall and possible snow in the northern pen. Thunderstorms are possible through the halifax area overflight. You will pick up the day with rain. Tomorrow in newfoundland. Much more clear conditions in our maritime provinces. As we go into the weekend, a rainier story for newfoundland and labrador with labrador sticking firmly in snow as we head toward saturday evening. That's a look at a more wintry may forecast. Now here are some warmer temperatures.
