Severe thunderstorms affecting SW Manitoba this morning.. showers/tstorms spreading into RRV this afternoon into tonight
Severe thunderstorms have developed over SW Manitoba this morning in advance of a warm front pushing north from North Dakota. This front is pushing in very unstable air aloft which has triggered strong to severe thunderstorms with large hail and very heavy rain across SW Manitoba. Quarter to golf ball size hail has been reported in some localities with 25 to 45 mm of torrential rain falling within 1 or 2 hours, in areas that are still recovering from 50 to 75 mm of rain from earlier this week. The severe thunderstorms will continue this morning with additional showers and thunderstorms spreading into the Red River valley this afternoon into tonight. Some storms may continue to be severe with locally large hail and very heavy rainfall. Stay tuned..
