Thunderstorms over RRV/SE MB today.. unsettled weather pattern continues into next week
A roller coaster weather pattern is expected over the next few days over southern Manitoba as a series of disturbances race across the central continent every 2-3 days. The result will be alternating days of sunshine and unsettled weather with showers and thunderstorms every other day or two. For today, a low pressure system tracking through the Interlake will swing a frontal trough across the Red River Valley, setting the stage for thunderstorm development this afternoon mainly east of the Red River valley, although Winnipeg may see some thunderstorms as well. Some of the storms could be strong with heavy rainfall and hail especially over Southeast MB and closer to the Ontario border. Things will dry out tonight with a nice day shaping up Friday with sunshine and warm temperatures in the mid 20s. Another band of showers and thunderstorms is possible Saturday, again with locally heavy rain rain possible, with a drier day forecast Sunday for Father's Day, and the annual Manitoba Marathon. More unsettled weather is expected Monday into Tuesday.
