Sep 27, 2019

Ottawa (Canada) Sept 27: Environment Canada is warning of the potential for severe storms to hit the region Thursday afternoon.
The agency issued a special weather statement around 4:30 p.m. warning of possible storms this afternoon and in the early evening.
Rain fell for most of this morning in the region, followed by a sunny break this afternoon.
Today there's also exactly 12 hours of daylight: the sun rises at 6:54 a.m. and sets at 6:54 p.m. That means more and more sightseeing and post-work wandering is happening in the dark.
Sunny skies will return tomorrow with a high of 21 C and at this point the weekend looks like a split decision: showers Friday night through Saturday then a sunny, slightly cooler Sunday.
Its daytime high of 16 C would be the first time in two weeks the high dropped below average.
In the Pembroke and Maniwaki areas, the overnight lows could drop to potential frost territory both Saturday and Sunday nights.
Sunday night's low for Maniwaki is 0 C.
Monday's forecasted high of 14 C would be the lowest daytime high in Ottawa since the end of May.
