Showers and possible thunderstorms moving in Saturday night
The weather will turn unsettled this weekend after several days of sunshine and dry conditions. A low pressure system over the Northern Plains will trigger a line of showers and thunderstorms over western and central North Dakota Saturday, some of which may be severe. The area of showers and thunderstorms will move into Manitoba Saturday night, albeit in a weaker state as the storms diminish in intensity. Nevertheless, southern MB may get its first thunderstorms of the season Saturday night with locally heavy rain possible. Unsettled weather is likely to continue into Sunday with periods of rain, especially through the Interlake and western MB areas which may see 15 to 25 mm of rain by Sunday evening. This would be a good thing for far southwest Manitoba which has seen very little rain so far this growing season.
