Strong thunderstorm rolls through Winnipeg.. again..
Nice little thunderstorm squall just went through Winnipeg between 10 and 10:30 pm this evening giving quite a light show, torrential rain and strong wind gusts. Winds gusted to 32 knots (60 km/h) at the airport, but doppler radar (right image) indicated wind gusts up to 50 kt (90 km/h) possible just southwest of the city (such as Oak Bluff and Sanford areas) I recorded 7 mm of rain in about 10 minutes, with a peak rainfall intensity of 110.7 mm/hr at 10:15 pm. Just what we didn't need.. more rain!
