She’s shaping up to be a wet night. If you believe in future radar, rain by midnight and storminess a couple hrs or so after that as far as Brandon itself at least:

wet and then there's wet...

I just saw on #ndwx that someplace just south of the border (south of Carduff SK) has gotten 254mm as of 9 p.m.  
I would be happy with a good inch or two, but not 10+ inches!  
It's a super-slow moving complex. Hopefully it will mostly die out before hitting us.  
Warnings are up for Melita & area.

Rain amount

I have 4/10 of an inch in my rain gauge this morning in central Brandon. It sounded like a lot more than that last night.

We needed rain

Yesterday the corn crop was really suffering, but what we received last night was not a storm but a welcome rain, checked the rain gauge and just a little over 5/10, another half an inch would help get through another week.

F8 said "I have 4/10 of an inch in my rain gauge this morning in central Brandon. It sounded like a lot more than that last night. "

I was surprised too considering the light show and the noise, but weather page is showing about 8mm at two different spots in Brandon so must be something to it. Must have been just a nice steady rain for those of us at the Northern part of the system. We’ll take it!

Yeah, we got about 10 mm here in Riverheights. It sure sounded like it was more when I was up with baby but I guess it was a nice, light steady rain. The ground would have had time to absorb it too, instead of a downpour.
