Winnipeg and area will continue to see a variety of generally unsettled weather ahead thanks to a persistent as a south-to-southwesterly flow aloft continues throughout the remainder of the week.
Today will be the nicest day of the next few as a few remaining showers clear out from last night’s activity early this morning, leaving the region with sunny skies for the rest of the day. Winds will be out of the southwest at around 30 gusting 50 km/h all day with temperatures climbing to a high near 20°C.

Temperatures will climb to a high near 18°C. Skies will clear out overnight with temperatures dipping to a low near 10°C with light winds shifting to the north.
Friday will once again see cloud move in early in the day with winds picking up out of the north to northeast to around 15-25 km/h. There will be another chance for light showers throughout the day, but it looks like they will be light and scattered. Temperatures will climb to a high near 18°C.
