Warm weather, showers on the way today

  • Print

The rain managed to hold off Thursday. Winnipeg will be lucky if history repeats itself today.

Environment Canada is calling for a mainly cloudy sky and a balmy high of 27 C this afternoon. It will be breezy beginning this morning, with a south wind 30 km/h gusting to 50 km/h.

Showers are expected to roll into the area this evening, including a risk of a thunderstorm. Amounts could be in the 10-20 millimetres range. Tonight’s low will be 18 C.

The weekend doesn’t look too promising. Morning showers (and thunderstorms) will give way to more cloud Saturday, with a 60 per cent chance of showers or thunderstorms developing late in the afternoon into the evening.

Saturday’s high is 25 C.

More showers are in the Winnipeg forecast for Sunday and Monday.

Meanwhile, Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning for the western edge of the province, from the international border right up to the Swan River and Duck Mountain region.

The warning is in effect from this morning to Saturday evening.

The region is expected to see a low pressure system move into the area this morning. Heavy rains could fall in the region, with some areas possibly seeing 50-80 mm of rain through today and overnight.
