A Return To Seasonal Weather

After a surprisingly cold day yesterday, we’ll be quickly returning to seasonal temperatures over the next couple days with little weather to worry about.

12hr. QPF valid Thursday at 18Z

12 hour precipitation accumulation from the RDPS model valid near lunch time on Thursday. The RDPS is forecasting roughly 1–3cm of snow over Western Manitoba as a cold trough lingers over the area.

Increasing cloud.
-17°C / -20°C

Some cloud will push in today as another disturbance begins to push into the region but our highs will still remain below normal, sitting at about –17°C for most of the Red River Valley. Winds will remain fairly light out of the south through the day. Temperatures will drop only a few degrees tonight to about –20°C thanks to lingering cloud cover.



Becoming cloudy.
-10°C / -15°C

We’ll see a return to normal temperatures Thursday as warmer air continues to work it’s way into Manitoba. Highs will sit near –10°C under a mix of sun and clouds. The cloud will be from a system to our west which is not expected to impact the Red River Valley but will bring some light snow to southwestern Manitoba. Skies will remain fairly cloudy overnight as we drop to –15°C.



Mix of sun and cloud.
-9°C / -13°C

Friday will once again bring a mix of sun and cloud. Almost a carbon copy of the day before, our daytime high should get up to around –9°C. Temperatures will drop to only about –13°C on Friday night as we head into a pleasant weekend with seasonal temperatures of around –8°C expected and little chance of snow.

Enjoy the return to seasonal temperatures and get out there and enjoy Festival du Voyageur or go for a skate down on the river! If you didn’t see it yesterday, be sure to check out our special post yesterday summarizing the Louis Riel Day blizzard.
