After a very active week across Southern Manitoba, a cold front passed through yesterday that is ushering in a ridge of high pressure that will set us up for a pleasant weekend.

A second cold front will be passing through southern Manitoba today however not nearly as much thunderstorm activity is expected with it as the hot, humid air that brought yesterday’s storms has been washed out of the province. A few non-severe thunderstorms are likely over the SW corner of the province and there’s a very slight chance of a thundershower over the Red River Valley, although if that were to happen it would likely be confined to the southern portions closer to the International Border.

A cool air mass will be pushing it with the ridge of high pressure which will allow our overnight lows to drop to around 10°C overnight, which is quite cool for the middle of July. Daytime highs will climb to the mid-20’s today, only to around 20°C on Saturday, then back to the mid-20’s on Sunday.

The start of next week is a little uncertain with some models hinting at another batch of severe thunderstorms on Monday night. We’ll keep you posted!
