Windy and warm today.. risk of thunderstorms tonight
Windy and warm conditions are on tap today as a gusty southerly flow develops ahead of a sharp cold front pushing through Saskatchewan. Southerly winds will gust up to 70 km/h this afternoon up the Red River valley, as temperatures climb into the upper 20s. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop ahead of the approaching cold front this evening and tonight, with a slight risk of severe thunderstorms over portions of western MB this evening with strong wind gusts as the main threat. The storms may produce some heavy rain, but any storms that develop will be moving rapidly which will diminish the heavy rain threat.. good news for areas hard hit by last week's locally torrential rains.
