Intensifying storm system to bring showers Friday night.. colder weekend with possible .. snow??!!
An intensifying storm system is forecast to track across southern Manitoba Friday into Saturday, bringing some widespread precipitation across the Dakotas and southern Manitoba. The system is expected to push a band of showers across the Red River valley late Friday into Friday night, with isolated thunderstorms possible over the far south into the Dakotas. General rainfall amounts of 10 - 20 mm are possible across southern MB by Saturday morning, with locally higher amounts in thunderstorms. On Saturday, the storm system is forecast to track east of Lake Winnipeg, dragging colder air on the backside of the system, and changing rain to wet snow mainly over the Interlake regions although some snow could also fall in Winnipeg Saturday into Saturday night. Cold weather will persist through Sunday with temperatures well below normal for the beginning of May.
