Winnipeg will not be playing catch up in the rain department early this week and the communities who were drenched over the weekend will have a chance to dry out a bit for at least a few days.
While a few drops of rain may still fall Monday afternoon, essentially the rain is done for the day.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be quiet around southern Manitoba as high pressure builds around the eastern prairies and low pressure builds towards the west.

Weather models have varying opinions on when rain will arrive as well as the amounts that could fall but more rain coming looks likely before the weekend.
As of Monday morning, a good bet for when we’ll get more rain will be Thursday, the last full day of spring as summer officially begins on Friday.
