System to bring rain/wet snow to southeast MB
A storm system developing in Colorado will track into Minnesota on Sunday bringing an area of rain into southern MB Sunday afternoon into Sunday night. Rain will likely change to wet snow Sunday night as colder air works into the backside of the storm system, with some accumulations possible by Monday morning (5 cm or less). The bulk of precipitation with this system is expected to hit the southern Red River valley and southeast MB where 5-10 mm is possible, while amounts of 10-20 mm are possible through the Red River valley of North Dakota. This system will pull out of the area on Monday but cooler than normal weather is likely through the rest of next week as cool high pressure remains entrenched across the Prairies while a stubborn storm track brings periodic rain or snow south of the border.
