Brandon spared worst of rain system as Plumas sees 80mm, others 50mm+

Posted by Adam in Local Weather, 7/10, 6:49 AM

All rainfall warnings that had been in place for Southern Manitoba on Tuesday have now been lifted as of wakeup on Wednesday morning and though Brandon might consider itself to have had a fair soaking it pales in comparison to what’s been experienced in other parts of the region over the past day. 

Officially Environment Canada is saying that Brandon saw 16.4mm of precip on Tuesday. With precious little having fallen since midnight it’s safe to say that the potential for records to be broken here on either day did not materialize. 

The story reads quite differently for other parts of the province with CBC reporting via Environment Canada Plumas having received a system high of 80mm, Waskada 65mm, Winnipeg recording 55mm so far at The Forks and there being some unofficial reports from the Southeast part of the Provincial Capital pointing to localized amounts of as much as 100+mm from the system as a whole. 

With today’s clearing it’s back to July heat with forecast highs for Brandon between 25 and 30 noted over the next week and only late Thursday afternoon showing as having a chance for rain.
