It looks like Mother Nature is going to cut us a break from this drought-like spring.
Dan Kulak, meteorologist with Environment Canada, says spots of southern Manitoba could see up to 20 millimetres of rain in the next 24 hours.
"We're looking at some rain moving into southern Manitoba Thursday night (and) Friday, moving out Friday night," he explained.
According to Kulak, current indications are the largest amounts of rain will fall near the Canada/U.S. border and into southeast Manitoba.
"But let's just sit back and take what we can get. I think anything is going to be welcome at this point," he said.
Kulak noted however, he can't comment on how this new-found moisture will impact soil conditions in the region.
And as we head into the May long weekend, many Manitobans are looking to embark on their first camping trip of the season.
Kulak says the system will move out of the region by Saturday giving way to cooler daytime temperatures in the upper-teens to start the weekend, eventually hitting the mid-twenties by Victoria Day.
He cautions this week's rain will dry-up quickly and urges people to enjoy camp fires responsibly.
