    Well no storms yet..As much as we need this rain, it’s too boring and doesn’t allow me to do anything. If only temperatures could hit around 18 degrees there would be thunderstorms popping up around here.

    Looks like Southern Manitoba will have its chance this weekend! The timing is still unclear, but the dynamics are very favorable for severe storms…the best I have seen anywhere on the Prairies this year!
