High pressure over southern MB is finally bringing a beautiful weekend over the area with sunny skies.. light winds and seasonable temperatures of 18c today and 21c Sunday. A great weekend to finally get that overdue landscaping started!
Attention then turns to a potentially heavy rainfall event that will be unfolding over North Dakota and northern Minnesota Sunday night into Monday that may affect southeast MB as well. A slow moving low pressure system with plenty of moisture feeding into the system will generate an area of slow moving showers and embedded thunderstorms Sunday night through Monday night over northeast ND, northern MN, possibly spreading into SE Manitoba mainly south and east of Winnipeg. Computer models are indicating that 50 to 75 mm is possible through this period, with the latest Canadian GLB model suggesting the Sprague area could be seeing 100 to 150 mm of rain Monday into Monday night! It is still too early to give precise details on location and amounts of rain with this upcoming system, but the potential exists for heavy rainfall over eastern North Dakota, northern MN, and the southern Red River basin through SE Manitoba Sunday night into Monday night. Stay tuned..
