Cloudy, Slightly Warmer Weekend Ahead

A series of low pressure systems moving through Manitoba will bring cloudier conditions this weekend alongside slightly milder temperatures.

Before the cloud arrives, today will bring another sunny day to Winnipeg with temperatures reaching a high near -14°C with winds picking up out of the southwest to 20 to 30 km/h this afternoon. Winds will ease tonight to around 10 km/h with increasing cloud cover as temperatures dip to a low near -21°C.

Skies will cloud over on Saturday with a chance of flurries as some slightly warmer air pushes in from the northwest. Highs should climb to around the -12°C mark, then fall to around -18°C on Saturday night with an increasing chance of seeing some light snow.

Sunday will bring cloudy skies to Winnipeg with a good chance of some light snow in the morning. Temperatures will climb to around -12°C again, but clearing skies in the evening will allow temperatures to dip back down to around -23°C for a low on Sunday night. Winds will switch from the southwest to the northwest midday as a low pressure system passes, picking up to around 30 km/h for a few hours in the afternoon. The winds will ease to light on Sunday night.

Long Range Outlook

The long-range forecast continues to look fairly dry with little significant changes on the horizon. Temperatures next week look variable between near-seasonal and below-seasonal, and other than a chance for some light snow on Wednesday, the forecast looks fairly dry.

Winnipeg’s seasonal daytime high is currently -9°C while the seasonal overnight low is -20°C.
