Significant rainfall expected this weekend

If you were 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 was developing over the U.S. Great Plains on Friday is expected to track north today, Environment Canada says, and spread a large area of rain into southern Manitoba beginning this evening.

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

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

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