Sun soon on its way to soggy Manitoba
It's another wet day in Winnipeg but if you squint through the rain, you can almost see the sun coming out on Thursday.
Environment Canada is calling for sun and temperatures from 22 C Thursday to 27 C on Saturday.
Even the overnight lows by the weekend will be some of the warmest temperatures southern Manitoba has experienced since the snow left. The forecast calls for the low on Friday night to be 13 C and 15 C on Saturday night.
But first we need to get through Tuesday and most of Wednesday.
Morning drizzle on Tuesday will change to showers in the afternoon and end late in the evening. The high is only expected to reach 13 C.
Clouds will linger through to Wednesday evening before the skies finally clear. The forecast high for Wednesday is 15 C.
The normal high for this time of year is 21 C with an overnight low of 7 C.
It's been a rainy stretch since Sunday, when on-and-off sprinkles moved in. Then the heavy rains came on Monday.
"Winnipeg even recorded its first thundershower of the season on Monday evening, a sure sign spring has arrived,' Environment Canada stated in its weather summary.
Generally, 10-15 millimetres of rain fell over eastern areas with 20-40 mm over western areas.
