Southern Manitoba will likely see roughly 20 mm of rain mixed with thunderstorms over Wednesday and Thursday before temperatures dip to below normal.
"Early this morning there is a band of showers and thunderstorms as well coming towards the city from the southwest," says Eric Dykes, a meteorologist with Environment Canada. "We could see a few more millimetres of rain. There is a chance we could see a few more showers this afternoon."
Overnight and into Wednesday morning the City of Winnipeg saw roughly 10 mm of rain.
"Amounts are hard to pinpoint for today but something north of 5 mm certainly is what we're on tap for today. The good news is that it dries out and we won't get any precipitation for the most part tonight."
Thursday starts off dry until the next weather system comes through the prairies.
"As we get into Thursday night we could see a further 10 mm of rainfall with perhaps some residual rainfall, maybe another 5 mm on Friday."
The high for Friday as of now is only five degrees with the normal average temperature closer to 20 degrees Celsius.
"Everything kind of climbs up from there on Saturday, it looks like a mix of sun and cloud with a high of 10 degrees. Drop down to near freezing on Saturday night and then we start to get the really nice warm up as we get into Sunday."
Even though the temperatures are well below normal, Environment Canada didn't mention any precipitation turning to snow, but rather just rain.
