It is looking very wet and fairly windy for the next 3 days. We may not see any major improvement until Wednesday!
Rain will begin to push in to Winnipeg soon as seen in the radar image directly below. This will be giving way to a rainy afternoon and evening today. The rain could be heavy at times. 5-15 mm is expected in Winnipeg today alone, but locally higher amounts are possible.

Tomorrow will continue the tradition of rainy May long weekends with yet another rainy day. And it will likely be a SOAKER. Drenching rains are expected for much of the day. Isolated thunderstorms are possible in southern Manitoba, but the risk is generally small.
20-40 mm of rainfall is expected in the Winnipeg area tomorrow (that's for the entire 24-hour day). However, even higher amounts could fall IF we end up under some heavier bands for a prolonged period of time. Localized overland flooding could become a concern in some areas if these higher amounts verify. Amounts will drop steadily as you go northwards.
Even as we get back to work on Tuesday, rain will still be possible. Although it wont be nearly as bad on Tuesday than on Monday, scattered showers are expected across southern Manitoba. An additional 2-5 mm could fall in some areas.
Rain wont be the only story however. Strong winds are expected today through to Wednesday. They will be east/northeasterly on each of these days. The windiest day will be Monday when gusts to 60 or 70 km/h are possible. Hold on to your hats and umbrellas tomorrow!
Conditions will finally improve by Wednesday with sunnier and more seasonal temperatures to finish the week thanks to a building ridge of high pressure over the Prairies. At this time, highly above normal temperatures are not expected.
