What a day today turned out to be in southern Manitoba. Temperatures soared into the low to mid 30's, some of the hottest weather we've had in May since the 1990's.
Winnipeg reached a high of 33.3°C before the storms rolled in, breaking the old record of 32.7°C in 1980. It was also the hottest day in May since 1995 when we hit 33.7°C on May 30. Wow, can weather change dramatically around here! After all, it was only less than 2 weeks ago that Winnipeg experienced some snow! Thunderstorms today also dumped some impressive rainfall locally. 27 mm of rain has fallen so far today in St Adolphe, just south of Winnipeg. Generally 5-15 mm seems to have fallen within Winnipeg; locally higher amounts may have fallen.
Scattered showers with a few rumbles of thunder remain possible through the night and into tomorrow, making for an unsettled and potentially stormy next 24 hours.
Thankfully, the warmth is expected to continue. Highs in the mid to upper 20's remain possible for Monday and Tuesday depending on sunshine. There is a slight risk of showers and storms Monday night into early Tuesday.
