More rain on tap for much of province

Don’t know why there’s no sun up in the sky... stormy weather.

Let that classic be your soundtrack as the grey skies and wet conditions continue throughout the capital region today. Environment Canada has pulled back on its forecast for thunderstorms but Winnipeg should expect periods of rain (10-15 millimetres) and high winds blowing from the northeast 40 km/h gusting to 60 km/h.

Umbrellas are the order of the day in the Exchange District and beyond Friday. The sun should fight its way through this weekend.

The high is expected to be 14 C; the low tonight 11 C.

Meanwhile, Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning for most of southern and western Manitoba. Those areas could see 50-75 millimetres of rain by the time the system passes through later today.

As of 4 a.m. Friday, Winnipeg had received 19 millimetres of rain.

Things should dry up over the weekend, though, with sunny skies forecast for the next three days. It will be cool, however — Saturday and Sunday’s highs are expected to be in the low teens, with the overnight lows dropping into the low single digits.

The normal high for this time of year is 22 C.
