Showers and thunderstorms moving through southern MB this morning
A weakening cold frontal trough pushing across southern Manitoba this morning is triggering a band of showers and thunderstorms ahead of it, bringing the first significant rainfall to the Red River valley in two weeks. Some heavier thunderstorms over southwest MB have produced tremendous rainfall totals over the Turtle Mountain area, with 80-100 mm of rain recorded in the Boissevain area, and 50-80 mm around Killarney. Storms are weakening as they head into the RRV, however some locally heavy downpours are still likely this morning, with local amounts of 15-25 mm possible in heavier showers and thunderstorms. This system will track east of the RRV this afternoon, with a return to warm and dry conditions for Thursday into the weekend.
