Without thunderstorm activity, precipitation amounts will be quite light but with thunderstorms, there is the chance of heavy downpours.

Behind this low pressure system, the sky will clear for Wednesday. It won’t be the warmest day but the heat will peak for us on Thursday, with high pressure settled into the south. Thursday could be the first time Winnipeg hits 20C this year.

The end of the week will likely wrap up with some rainy and windy conditions on Friday, potentially into Friday night. Friday will be rainier than Tuesday.
