The Best Weather…Is No Weather?

It’s steady sailing for Winnipeg through the remainder of the work week with no notable changes in the weather expected.

The persistent Arctic ridge that has been building across the southern Prairies will continue to remain in place for the remainder of the week, bringing very little change to the weather over the next 3 days. Winnipeg will see daytime highs right around the -16°C mark with plenty of sunshine through the remainder of the work week. Overnight lows will dip to around -26°C tonight and Thursday night, but slightly warmer temperatures will move in ahead of a low pressure system on Friday night, keeping lows a bit warmer near -20°C with some cloud cover building into the region.

Long Range Outlook

A low pressure system passing through on the weekend will bring some cloud and a chance of flurries. Temperatures aren’t really forecast to climb too much, but the passage of this low may begin shifting the overall weather pattern and allow seasonal or slightly above-seasonal temperatures to move into southern Manitoba next week.

In the meantime, grab those skates, or skis, or boots, and get out and enjoy the sunshine!

Winnipeg’s seasonal daytime high is currently -10°C while the seasonal overnight low is -20°C.
