Showers moving in for Manitoba marathon..
It looks like the Manitoba marathon will be encountering some wet conditions for Sunday. An area of low pressure over the Dakotas will spawn some showers and thunderstorms south of the border Saturday night which will advance northward into southern MB by Sunday morning. Timing of the showers moving into Winnipeg is still uncertain.. but it appears that the race should start off dry for the 7 am start with comfortable temperatures around 15-18C, and light southeast winds. Clouds will thicken through the morning with showers arriving by mid to late morning. Some of the rain could be heavy at times as well with the possibility of a thunderstorm. Temperatures will level off around 20C or even fall in the afternoon as the rains pick up. So if you're running on Sunday, prepare for a wet finish, unless you're really fast! Good luck to all the runners..
