Updated at 8:50 p.m. May 29th, 2022- Environment Canada has ended the Tornado Watch that had been in effect for regions along the U.S. border. The weather service has downgraded it to a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for the Killarney, Pilot Mound, Manitou, Morden, Winkler, Altona, Morris, Emerson and Vita regions.
A Special Weather Statement is in effect for most of Southeastern Manitoba with further significant rainfall expected Monday and Tuesday in the already waterlogged region.
Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms Sunday evening over parts of southern Manitoba.
- hail to the size of loonies
- rainfall in excess of 75 mm
- wind gusts in excess of 100 km/h
A moist unstable airmass is moving into the area from the United States. This airmass will result in a few thunderstorms developing, some of which may become severe.
Thunderstorms are expected to move out of the region by evening.
Looking ahead to Monday night through Tuesday, potentially 30 to 50mm of rainfall is in the forecast for the Red River Valley and Southeastern Manitoba.
