John's Manitoba weather journal: Oct. 14

Looking back at the rain dropped by the Colorado Low yesterday and it's clear that areas west of the Red River Valley received the brunt of the moisture. Below is a snapshot of some of the rainfall totals. Winnipeg missed the heaviest rain, receiving just 13mm on Wednesday. Miami, Man. received almost 80mm.

As the system pulls farther north on Thursday, expect snow through areas like Thompson. 

I see sunshine for the west on Friday afternoon and clearing in the evening for the Red River Valley. 

The weekend looks sunny with seasonal temps for the south, which means morning lows will be close to the freezing mark. Monday will be the warm day in the south with a shot at another 20 degree high.
