Improving Weather

Southern Manitoba will see improving conditions today and round out the work week with nice conditions and near-normal temperatures.

Ridge Dominating Southern Manitoba

Model 3hr. QPF & MSLP w/Surface analysis valid 00Z Thursday April 19th

There will be a slight chance of some light snow this morning over the western half of the Red River Valley as a weak short wave slumps into North Dakota. As it exits the province, clouds will clear and we’ll be left with a sunny afternoon with a high near 8°C.

Clear skies will be the weather story for the rest of the week as a ridge of high pressure builds in from Northern Saskatchewan. We’ll have an overnight low near -6°C tonight and warm back up to a repeat of today on Thursday, with a high near 7°C. Rinse and repeat for Thursday night. As a system pushes into the NW United States, slightly warmer air pushes into Southern Manitoba and we’ll likely see our daytime high bumped up a few degrees to around 10°C.

Saturday brings with it a chance of rain as an upper trough swings across the Prairies. We’ll keep an eye on that as the week progresses!

In short, it’ll be a sunny, albeit a little cool, rest of the week!
