A Sunny, Hot & Muggy Weekend Ahead

After a very busy day across Southern Manitoba yesterday that brought strong winds but, more significantly, absolutely drenching rainfall to many areas, much quieter weather is in store for the weekend.

The weather over the coming few days will, fortunately, take little space to explain. For all the coming days, we’ll see daytime highs in upper 20’s or just cracking the 30°C mark. It will feel a bit warmer than that, though, as a moderate amount of humidity remains in the region. Dew point values will fall to around 16 or 17°C this afternoon, but then rebound back into the upper teens or low 20’s for Saturday & Sunday. This will make for quite a hot and humid weekend.

The orange colours in the Red River Valley show dew point values remaining near 20°C.

Winds will remain fairly light over the coming days. Overnight lows will sit in the upper teens.

Little precipitation is expected; and little is expected in the way pop-up showers or thunderstorms are expected. There’s a chance of some shower activity moving through tonight, but it’s not expected to be particularly significant.

Unsettled Start to Next Week?

The beginning of next week may potentially have a stormy and unsettled start as a low pressure system moving through the region brings another round of thunderstorms to Southern Manitoba. At this stage, it doesn’t look like nearly as widespread an event as the extensive system that affected Southern Manitoba on Thursday. With the heat and humidity in place, though, severe thunderstorms may be a possibility. As we move further into the weekend, we’ll be keeping an eye on things and issue a convective outlook for Monday or Tuesday if it looks significant enough.

Until then, enjoy the hot and humid weather!
