SYNOPTIC OVERVIEW: A surface low (1001 hPa) is located over the border of the NWT with a surface trough extending into Southern Alberta. This trough is the main feature today in the ECCC weather discussions and is expected to move eastward out of our study region by this afternoon. Convective activity is expected with the movement of the trough, with greatest CAPE values along the foothills. CaPA is showing heavier precipitation amounts to the north of the SPADE region over the next 24 h.
