Staying on the Cool Side

Temperatures will remain on the cooler side early this week, although values won’t be far from seasonal.

Today will be a mixture of sun and cloud with temperatures in the mid minus teens. Some mid and upper level cloud cover will likely be in place during the morning, but may begin to clear out by the afternoon – although Winnipeg may be on the edge of this transition. Winds will be breezy from the south-east.

Tuesday will see temperatures near seasonal values under mainly cloudy skies. High temperatures will sit in the low minus teens with a light northerly wind.

Wednesday will be much the same as Tuesday, with temperatures in the low minus teens and mainly cloudy skies. Winds will be light from the west or north-west.

Long Range

Long range models suggest a return to warm weather around New Years. El Nino is reaching peak strength as we approach mid-winter and thus its impacts will continue to be pronounced through the remainder of winter.
