Showers and thunderstorms likely Monday night into Tuesday.. then turning warmer and drier for end of week..
After a stormy end to June with bouts of heavy rainfall, Winnipeg has yet to see any precipitation in July as a drier and warmer weather pattern evolves. Strong thunderstorm activity last evening over western MB pushed into the RRV overnight, but only managed to produce a few raindrops in the city as the storms weekened or split. The next threat of significant rainfall for the city will be Monday night into Tuesday as a storm system from Montana tracks into North Dakota. This system will likely spread an area of showers and thunderstorms along the US border which will push into southern MB Monday night into Tuesday. Some of the rain will be heavy with these thunderstorms with rainfall amounts of 25-50 mm possible in some areas, along with the potential for hail and frequent lightning. Things should clear out Tuesday evening with a return to drier and warmer weather for the latter part of the week.
