Showers and thundertorm possible overnight into Thursday.. cooler weather for weekend
A wave of low pressure moving along a frontal system just south of the US border will bring an increasing threat of showers and thunderstorms to southern MB overnight into Thursday morning. Locally heavy downpours are possible with this activity, with rainfall amounts of 15-25 mm possible in some areas. As this precipitation moves out by midday, a trailing cold front will bring the threat of more thunderstorms Thursday afternoon into Thursday evening, especially across southwestern MB. This cold front will mark the leading edge of cooler air that will flood into southern MB Friday into Saturday. Daytime highs Saturday will only be around 20C, with overnight lows likely dipping into the single digits by Sunday morning. Warmer weather is expected to return early next week with highs back in the upper 20s.
