Warm & Quiet Weather Ahead

After a busy couple weeks across Southern Manitoba, a stretch of mild, fairly quiet weather is ahead thanks to weak upper-level ridging over the eastern Prairies.

Today and tomorrow will both be pleasant days with a few afternoon clouds and highs in 26 or 27°C range. Winds will be a bit breezy out of the west today, but much calmer conditions will be seen on Saturday over the Red River Valley. Expect an overnight low near 10°C tonight and in the mid-teens on Saturday night.

The only chance for precipitation will come late overnight Saturday or Sunday morning as a trough rotates through the Interlake into the Red River Valley. It doesn’t seem like the showers will be too intense or organized, so at this point it seems like there’s just a slight chance of them. Otherwise, Sunday will be a fairly pleasant day with a high in the mid-20’s and winds picking up out of the northwest through the day to around 30km/h.

RDPS Forecast Temperature for 00Z Sunday August 02, 2015
The RDPS is forecasting temperatures in the mid-to-upper 20’s over Southern Manitoba for Saturday afternoon.

Early next week looks to start off a little bit cool with highs only in the low-to-mid 20’s. At this point, it looks like the next chance for any organized precipitation will hold off until the middle of next week!
