Let's start with the positive.

Winnipeg will be seeing clear skies for the first few hours this morning. So you should try to sneak in that visit to the St. Norbert Farmers' Market or the garage sale nearby before noon.

This afternoon Environment Canada predicts thunderstorm clouds and showers and says the temperature will peak at 26 C. The UV index is 3 or moderate.

And don't shoot the messenger, but Environment Canada is also predicting showers in Winnipeg all the way through Tuesday.

If you're feeling waterproof, check out Art City's annual parade by Broadway and Young today at 2 p.m. This year's theme involves gigantic handmade animal puppets.

And tonight, stretch out before settling in at the Goldeyes game at 6 p.m. at Shaw Park. Lululemon is hosting a public yoga session on the baseball pitch before the game at 4:45 p.m.
