More rain on the way.. heavy at times..
Looks like another shot of rain is headed for Southern MB.. and rainfall will likely be heavy at times overnight through Thursday with amounts of 25-50 mm possible across southern MB including Winnipeg. A major storm system is developing over the northern Plains states, which will likely bring a severe weather outbreak through the northern and central plains , especially from South Dakota into Kansas where tornadoes, damaging winds and large hail are likely. For us in Southern MB, we'll likely miss out on severe weather, but we'll see lots of rain. An inital band of rain will move in this afternoon giving 5 to 10 mm by evening. Things will get more interesting tonight as thunderstorms from the plains system push northward from the Dakotas into southern MB spreading heavy rain across the Red River valley overnight through Thursday. Most places will likely see at least 25 mm of rain by Thursday evening, with some places likely getting 50 mm or more. It will also turn windy Thursday with strong northerly winds gusting to 70 km/h and temperatures only around 10 degrees or so. What a lovely June day Thursday will be! The good news is that we should clear out Thursday night with drier and warmer weather forecast through the upcoming weekend.
