The storms and rains overnight which moved in from North Dakota into southeastern Manitoba narrowly missed Winnipeg. You can see how close it got to the city with the 24-hour radar estimated rainfall accumulation below: (You can view these maps anytime at A Weather Moment Radar Viewer)
Thunderstorms overnight in addition to some scattered storms yesterday brought localized rainfall totals of 25 mm + south and east of Winnipeg. Meanwhile, only a trace to less than 1 mm fell in Winnipeg in exception to the extreme south/southeast corner which had a brief downpour near 1 am. Nearby Lorette, just a very short drive to the southeast, received about 8 mm according to a cocorahs observer. The heavier amounts north of Winnipeg on the rainfall accumulation image was from the thunderstorms yesterday afternoon and evening.
Drier weather has now settled in for a few days before our next chance at some storm activity Thursday night. Temperatures will gradually increase through to Thursday, with a high in the low 20's today, mid to high 20's tomorrow and near 30°C on Thursday.
Next chance for rain is Thursday night. Severe thunderstorms will be possible in western parts of Manitoba Thursday evening, and anything that forms there has the potential to march eastward in the RRV Thursday night. It's still a bit of a distance away, so there's still some time for things to change. Will keep you updated. Here's hoping we actually get something because we're almost half way through July and we've yet to receive accumulative rainfall.
