Thunderstorms bring heavy rains to western MB.. rain to overspread Red River valley tonight..
A line of showers and thunderstorms brought heavy rain to western MB today, with unofficial amounts of 30-45 mm from southwest MB across the Riding Mountains through Dauphin. This area of convection will be moving off to the north and northeast this evening, but another area of showers and thunderstorms developing over North Dakota will spread over the Red River valley and southeast MB this evening and overnight. 10-20 mm of rain is likely in these areas by Monday morning with locally higher amounts possible in some areas due to thunderstorms. Watch for localized flooding as many ditches are near bank full and will not be able to absorb any excess rainfall. After a break Monday, more rain is on the way Monday night into Tuesday with another 10-20 mm possible, along with a change to snow by Tuesday night into Wednesday.
