Nice Start to the Week, Then Some Rain

This week will start out very nice, with temperatures in the twenties. However, a strong low pressure system will move in toward the middle of the week, bringing more unsettled conditions.


Today will be a great day in southern Manitoba. Temperatures will be near the 20C mark with sunny skies and light winds. There isn’t much else to say, enjoy the weather!


Tuesday will be another very nice day as temperatures climb into the low twenties, once again under mainly sunny skies. Winds will be from the south-east at about 20 km/h.


Wednesday will remain warm, but more unsettled conditions will begin to take hold in southern Manitoba. An approaching low pressure system is expected to bring rain showers to southern Manitoba late in the day and into Wednesday night. This system may bring us more significant precipitation on Thursday, but it is too early to speculate on potential rainfall amounts.

Long Range

It looks like we’ll see cooler weather late this week into the weekend as a much cooler air mass gets pulled down from the north. This push of cool air will result from the departure of this week’s low pressure system. Long range models suggest we’ll return to above-seasonal conditions at some point next week.
