It looks like we’ll have to deal with one more storm system before more summerlike weather finally moves in. For those of you who wouldn’t mind seeing a little more rain during this forecast period, then this is the forecast for you. If you have had it up to about here with rain, then it’s time to put your fingers in your ears and repeatedly say “I’m not listening!”

The weather models point toward another unseasonably strong area of low pressure moving through southern and central regions of Manitoba during the later part of this week. Exactly how far north or south this low tracks and how long it takes to push through will have a big impact on who gets rain and just how much rain will fall.

Currently it looks like far western regions and then more northern regions of agricultural Manitoba will see most of the rain. Some regions could see upward of 30 to 50 millimetres of rain from this system. Over more southern and eastern regions, only a few showers are expected, but the odd heavy thunderstorm can’t be ruled out.

Once this system pushes through it looks like a much more summery pattern will begin to take shape. We should see more sun than clouds, with high temperatures in the mid-20s on most days. There will still be some areas of low pressure kicking around, but it looks like any strong systems will be well to our north and any more southern systems will bring only scattered clouds with the chance of the odd shower or thundershower.

Usual temperature range for this period: Highs: 19 to 29 C. Lows: 7 to 15 C.
