One Cool Day Before Warmer Weather Returns

With the passage of a powerful cold front that swept through Southern Manitoba last night, we’ll see a slightly cooler day today before another upper ridge builds back into the Prairies.

Temperatures will be slightly cooler today with daytime highs only around 15°C. Fortunately, skies will be sunny and the wind will be a bit calmer out of the west at around 30km/h. An upper ridge begins to build back into the Prairies for the weekend, though, once again pushing our temperatures up. We’ll see mainly sunny skies and temperatures climbing into the low 20’s by the end of the weekend.
