Grab your umbrella and hold on tightly as you head out to vote this Election Day today in Winnipeg and across southeastern Manitoba! Rain showers will continue into tonight with strong, gusting winds. And as those northerly winds cross bodies of water like Lake Winnipeg, don't be surprised to see some snow mixing in with rain overnight and on Tuesday morning. Rainfall amounts aren't expected to be significant, but river levels in Winnipeg are high.
The bulk of the rain with this low pressure system will stay south of the border today. Tonight, as low shifts into Ontario, northwestern Ontario will get quite a rainfall overnight with 15-25 mm possible in some areas.
Otherwise, conditions are pretty uneventful across the rest of Manitoba on Monday. Once the rain and snow ends on Tuesday, conditions and temperatures will gradually improve this week in Winnipeg, setting us up for a really nice start to the weekend on Saturday.
