Wet weekend on tap

If you're looking up at grey skies on Friday afternoon with some trepidation, Environment Canada has confirmed your worst fears.

Late Friday afternoon, the national forecaster issued a special weather statement for southern Manitoba, warning of significant rainfall over the weekend.

A low pressure system that is developing over the U.S. Great Plains on Friday is expected to track northwards on Saturday, Environment Canada says, and spread a large area of rain into Southern Manitoba beginning Saturday evening.

The heaviest rain is expected to fall overnight Saturday and Sunday morning, and most locations can expect to see 30 to 50 mm of rain in total with the potential for locally higher amounts.

The rain will to taper off to showers Sunday morning for the Red River Valley and the southeast, while the Interlake and southwestern areas will see steady rain continuing through Monday morning before the system finally moves off into Northern Ontario.

People are advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.
