It was late Wednesday when Environment Canada release a rainfall warning for the area with a prediction of 50 to 60mm of rain falling from Thursday night until Saturday morning. The bulk of that system has moved on and while there is still some light rain in the area, the totals are coming in and they are higher than expected. Some areas to the west and northwest also received snow and poor highway conditions were reported around Brandon and to the north. 

The latest forecast has some rain and drizzle in the area with a high of 9 today. It is expected to drop to 2 overnight so there is a risk of frost.
