Warm windy and wet weather moving in Tuesday
A storm system pushing into the US southwest is expected to intensify Monday night into Tuesday over eastern Montana bringing increasingly windy and unsettled weather over southern MB. The first wave of clouds from this system is pushing in tonight into Monday with scattered showers along the international border. The storm system will intensify Monday night into Tuesday as it moves into Montana, bringing an increasing southerly flow of warm moist air over the Dakotas into southern MB along a warm front. Showers and scattered thunderstorms are likely along this front Monday night into Tuesday with locally heavy rain possible especially over SW Manitoba where showers will be more persistent. Some thunderstorms may even produce hail over parts of southern MB overnight Monday into Tuesday morning. As the front pushes northward across southern MB Tuesday into Wednesday, gusty southeast winds will draw in warm air from the US plains, with temperatures possibly hitting the 20C mark for the first time this season across the RRV and SE Manitoba.
