Winnipeg will finally see some rain this morning with a band of left-over convection from yesterday. General amounts have seemed to be between 5 and 15 mm in southwestern Manitoba overnight with this band, however Winnipeg should see amounts on the lower side, around 5 mm, this morning. This rain is welcomed news to the drought-stricken city, however it may be too little to make much of a difference.
It doesn't look like we'll clear out much this afternoon behind the rain. There may be a few sunny breaks here and there, but generally it will be a cloudy day. As a result, highs around 23 or 24°C are expected.
Tonight, things may get interesting. Elevated convection will be possible. With this, a lot of rain, and potentially some lightning, will be possible later this evening and overnight. If we're lucky, we could get 10 to 20 mm of rain, and even higher if we get some thunderstorms going. Stay tuned to the comment section below for updates, as uncertainty lies. As this convection initially forms over southwestern Manitoba and North Dakota, some large hail, damaging winds and excessive rainfall with frequent lightning will be possible for areas south of Brandon, and west of Emerson.
In the long range, I wanted to give a heads-up on when the heat will start cranking up again. It looks like things will begin to heat up Thursday, and continue into part of the weekend. Highs in the low to mid thirties and humidex values near 40 will be possible for those few days. It is still far, therefore things could change, however that's how it looks so far.
