  • Print

Weather-wise, things look pretty good today. It’s the rest of the week that’s the problem.

Environment Canada is calling for a mainly sunny sky and a high of 25 C this afternoon. The wind should blow from the east 20 km/h, with gusts up to 30 km/h at times.

Look for increasing cloudiness overnight and a low of 16 C.

Beginning Thursday, Winnipeg and the surrounding area can expect more rain. Showers with thunderstorms should start early in the morning, with precipitation amounts near 10 millimetres. The wind will blow from the southeast 30 km/h and the high should be around 21 C.

More shower activity is expected Friday and Saturday.

On the subject of rain, Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the southwestern corner of the province today.

Strong thunderstorms developing over Montana and North Dakota are expected to spread northward late this afternoon and evening, bringing with them the potential for some heavy rains in the Melita, Boissevain and Turtle Mountain Provincial Park regions.

Environment Canada says 40-70 millimetres of rain is possible in just a few hours.

The storms are expected to push into the Red River valley overnight.
