Here's my current best forecast for tonight and tomorrow:
I'll be updating my forecast throughout the event, but here's how it looks so far. Some scattered showers are moving through southern Manitoba this afternoon, though it really isn't much. Most of us will likely see nothing until tonight.
More organised showers and thunderstorms are expected to form south of the border in the Dakotas, Wyoming and Montana this evening. These storms will move northeastward into southeast Saskatchewan, Manitoba and northern Ontario later in the evening and overnight. Rain looks to be heaviest and more widespread in northwest Ontario, over the Interlake, and over southwest Manitoba and southeast Saskatchewan. That being said, the highest risk for thunderstorms will be in south/southeast Manitoba and northwest Ontario. At this point it does not appear storms will be severe on our side of the border, though some bigger storms may give some small hail, gusty winds and torrential downpours. Areas that get storms will see higher rainfall amounts.
