However, we have now reached an important milestone when it comes to the lack of thunderstorms in the last several months. Assuming that we don't get a thunderstorm today, we have now reached 288 consecutive days without a thunderstorm. This is now officialy the longest period on record without receiving a thunderstorm in Winnipeg since 1953.
Our next best chance for storms in Winnipeg will be next Monday. Let's hope we finally manage to get something!
Here's a couple pictures I took of that convective activity we had yesterday late afternoon and early evening in Winnipeg. The rainbow one is actually quite cool because it's a good example of the ''dissipating stage'' of a pulse thunderstorm.
|Growing cumulus late afternoon over south Winnipeg; would eventually produce downpours over W/SW ends|
