Scattered thunderstorms this afternoon over Red River valley/Interlake areas... some possibly severe..
A cold frontal trough over western MB will push eastward today tapping a warm and fairly moist airmass ahead of it over the Red River valley and Interlake regions this afternoon. Cloudy skies this morning will give way to some sunshine as the afternoon progresses allowing temperatures to rise into the low to mid 20s. This will set the stage for a line of thunderstorms to develop along and ahead of the trough line this afternoon mainly from the Interlake areas in through the Red River valley including Winnipeg. Some storms may become severe especially through the Interlake where upper winds are stronger, with quarter size hail, strong wind gusts and heavy downpours possible. Storm motion will be to the east-northeast at 30-40 km/h. Clearing conditions are expected by evening as the front moves east of the Red River valley.
