Rainy weather Thursday night prevented crews from fogging for mosquitoes in Winnipeg.

The city says, weather permitting, fogging will resume Friday night for adult nuisance mosquitoes.

The Insect Control Branch will fog between 9:30 p.m. and 6:30 a.m.

Areas to be treated tonight include 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 42, 43, 44, 45, 47, 48, 49, 50 and 51.

Some areas of Winnipeg received between 30-40 mm of rain, which is expected to continue throughout the day.
