Tuesday

Tuesday
6°C / -1°C
Mainly Cloudy

Tuesday will be very similar to Monday is many respects. Skies will once again be mainly cloudy, but with an increasing southerly wind. High temperatures will once again be in the mid single digits.

Wednesday

Wednesday
10°C / -2°C
Mix of Sun and Cloud

Wednesday looks to be one of the warmest days of the week. An approaching low pressure system will push a warm air mass into southern Manitoba, potentially sending temperatures soaring into the positive teens. Snow-free areas just to our south could be even warmer, with Grand Forks and Fargo potentially having a shot at reaching 20C for the first time this year.

Long Range

We’ll see a slight cool down after Wednesday, with temperatures on Thursday dropping back down into the single digits. Models suggest that we’ll generally see below-normal conditions through the middle of the month, but thankfully that just means temperatures will be lower than +10C, which won’t really feel that cold in general.
