After a summerlike week of sunshine and warm temperatures, it looks like the weather will be getting a little more unsettled for the holiday weekend. A developing low pressure system over the Northern Plain states will bring an area of showers and thunderstorms into southern MB by Saturday night, with locally strong thunderstorms bringing a threat of heavy rain and hail to some localities. This activity will move east of the RRV into NW Ontario during Sunday, but another area of showers is forecast to spread in on holiday Monday along with cooler temperatures. The weekend won't be a total washout, with dry weather most of Saturday and parts of Sunday, but be prepared for the potential of locally heavy rain at times, especially Saturday night into Sunday morning.
Based on current models, here's what the weekend is looking like for Winnipeg and the RRV...
Saturday..Partly sunny, breezy. Chance of a shower or thunderstorm especially over western MB and Interlake. High 24.
Saturday night..Showers and thunderstorms developing. Some locally strong thunderstorms possible with heavy rain and hail.
Sunday..Showers and thunderstorms moving east then partly sunny. High 24.
Monday..Cloudy and cooler with showers developing. high 20.
More details as we get closer to the weekend. Stay tuned.
