Rain is moving through Winnipeg this afternoon, with about 7 mm reported by most sites across the city as of 3 pm. Note that I'm currently having problems with rainfall readings from my Rob's Obs site.. I just checked the rain gauge and some bird has decided to use it as its own personal bird seed collector! So the gauge is jammed with bird seed and not reporting rainfall accurately. I'll try to clean it out over the next day or so, but until then, Rob's Obs rainfall will be inaccurate. Look at the PJ school site for more accurate Charleswood rainfall.
As for this rain.. it should gradually taper off tonight then we get a few showers Saturday before another batch of rain moves in Saturday night into Sunday from the Dakotas. Models are showing a real soaker out of this Saturday night event, especially over southwest MB with 30-50 mm possible, likely with embedded thunderstorms. Not the best timing on a weekend, but it's sure welcome for farmers..
