3:45 PM CDT Thursday 28 April 2022 Rainfall warning in effect for areas in red



Rain, at times heavy, is expected. The ground, already near saturation, has little ability to absorb further rainfall. Another 20-50 mm of rain will begin Friday night in southern Manitoba as third major low pressure system in as many weeks impacts southern Manitoba. Rain will lift northwards into the province on Friday night, bringing 20 to 50 mm of rain over the following 24-36 hours. Like the previous storm, embedded thunderstorms are also possible and could bring high rainfall rates to the region. Stay tuned to https://weather.gc.ca for updated forecasts and alerts as the event nears and the impact of the storm becomes more certain. For information regarding flooding, consult the Province of Manitoba's Flood Information page: https://www.gov.mb.ca/flooding/index.html

Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Rainfall warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to MBstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #MBStorm.
