Showers/thunderstorms on tap tonight into Friday
A cold front approaching from Saskatchewan will trigger a band of showers and thunderstorms over southern MB beginning this afternoon and continuing through tonight into Friday. The heaviest activity in terms of thunderstorms is expected to develop over southwest MB later today then move northeast through the Interlake tonight. Locally severe thunderstorms are possible along this swath with the potential for large hail and damaging winds along with local rainfall amounts of 20-40 mm. Showers and scattered thunderstorms will be spreading across the remainder of southern MB tonight into Friday with rainfall amounts of 10-20 mm possible. Noticeably cooler weather will move in behind this cold front for Friday and Saturday with high temperatures some 10-15 degrees cooler than the 30 degree weather of the past week. Warmer weather is set to return to southern MB by Monday.
