Warmer Temperatures, Plenty of Sun Ahead

Winnipeg will see plenty of sun over the weekend with temperatures finally warming to near-seasonal values.

Winnipeg will be under the influence of a high pressure system for the next several days. This will result in plenty of sunshine, relatively light winds, and gradually warming temperatures.

Skies will be mainly sunny today, shifting towards partly cloudy on Saturday as the region may get grazed by cloud associated with a low pressure system in the United States. Winnipeg will likely see a partly cloudy skies on Sunday as a bit of cloud from a low pressure system tracking through the northern Prairies moves through. All that said, the forecast isn’t actually very pessimistic. Winnipeg will see plenty of sunshine over the next 3 days.

Winnipeg should finally begin shaking the pattern of below-normal temperatures with daytime highs climbing from near 0°C today to 6 or 7°C on Sunday. Overnight lows will also climb from near -10°C tonight into the mid-minus single digits for the weekend.

Winds will be breezy today, picking up to 20 to 30 km/h out of the north. They will diminish this evening, then remain relatively light at 10 to 20 km/h both Saturday and Sunday. Winds will be out of the east-southeast through the weekend.

Long Range Outlook

Winnipeg should see more sun to start next week with near-seasonal temperatures. Conditions turn a bit more unsettled mid-week, bringing a slight cool-down and chance for precipitation.

Winnipeg’s seasonal daytime high is currently 10°C while the seasonal overnight low is -2°C.
