On Thursday widespread thunderstorms developed across Southern Manitoba and resulted in some significant rainfall amounts over the course of a few hours.

Generally, most locations in an area east of Brandon and south of Hecla received between 20 to 40 mm of rain. However, several bands of intense or training thunderstorms produced substantially higher amounts. In addition, several reports of strong winds and hail accompanied the largest storms.
