Some much needed rain Thursday?
A weather system tracking across the northern US plains will spread an area of showers across southern MB on Thursday hopefully bringing some much needed rainfall to the south Winnipeg area. Current indications are that between 5 to 10 mm of rain is expected across Winnipeg, although some model solutions indicate as much as 20 mm of rain is possible (more likely with embedded thunderstorms) . This would be most welcome across southern Winnipeg which has been very dry since late July. Lawns here are brown and cracked with a severe lack of subsoil moisture. Here in Charleswood, I've only recorded 26 mm of rain since August 1, with no single rainfall over 5 mm over that time. The last time we had more than 5 mm of rain at one time was way back on July 25th during a heavy thunderstorm when 18 mm fell. So a little rain Thursday wouldn't be such a bad thing..we could sure use it.
