WINNIPEG - Those tickets for the ark? Don’t throw them away just yet.

After a precipitation deluge over the weekend, Environment Canada says this morning that a dry Monday doesn’t seem likely.

Showers were widespread to the west and north of the city early this morning and, despite the mostly clear skies at sunrise, Environment Canda is calling for a day with increasing clouds and a 60 per cent chance of further wet stuff.

There’s even a chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon, when the day’s high should reach 18 degrees.

The forecast includes winds kicking up as the day goes on, with gusts to 40 kilometres per hour.

Tuesday’s forecast is a little better, with cloud and sun and no mention — yet — of rain.

The weekend saw a reported 53 millimetres of rain at Richardson International Airport on Saturday and a further six millimetres on Sunday. We’re sure that loudspeaker said that those needing a little extra time down the ark-way were welcome to board.
