Dry spell continues.. wet weather by the end of next week?
The dry spell continues over Winnipeg and the Red River valley with no measurable precipitation recorded since April 2-3rd, a full 3 weeks ago. And the prospects for significant rain look slim for the next few days over most of southern MB as weather systems continue to bypass our area. There is a chance of some showers over southwest Manitoba Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening , but amounts are expected to be light. Dry weather is expected for the bulk of the upcoming week, but models are indicating the potential of our first significant rainfall over much of southern MB by Friday into next weekend as a large storm system moves into the Northern plains. Widespread showers and scattered thunderstorms are likely with this system, with areas of heavy rain possible over portions of the southern Prairies. It's still too early to say how much rain if any we'll be getting out of this system depending on its evolution and eventual track. However with things so dry over southern MB, the prospects of some beneficial rain is welcome at this point. Stay tuned..
