Mostly Cloudy Skies and Seasonal Temperatures Ahead for Canada Day Weekend

Winnipeg will see seasonal temperatures this weekend with generally cloudy conditions. Unfortunately, it looks like more rain may be on the way for Canada Day evening.

Any last showers or thunderstorms will push east of Winnipeg this morning, but plenty of cloud will remain as a trough lingers through the region. Winds will pick up out of the northeast to 20 to 30 km/h this morning while temperatures climb to a high near 23°C. Winnipeg will have mostly cloudy skies tonight as temperatures dip to a low near 15°C. The wind will ease tonight as it shifts northerly.

Cloudy skies continue Saturday with just a slight chance of showers. Winnipeg should see a high near 24°C with the sun peeking from the clouds a bit late in the afternoon. Winds will be out of the northwest at 15 to 20 km/h. Skies will cloud over again on Sunday night with a low near 14°C.

Unfortunately, more rain may be on the way in the evening on Canada Day

On Canada Day looks to bring a mixed bag to the city. After what looks to be a cloudy start, Winnipeg should see clearing skies for the afternoon with plenty of sunshine as temperatures climb to a high near 25°C. Winds shouldn’t be much of an issue either, increasing out of the southwest to around 15 to 25 km/h in the afternoon. Unfortunately, current guidance suggests that a low pressure system moving into the region will cloud things over again late in the day and bring showers and/or thunderstorms back to the region, possibly making outdoor celebrations a little unpleasant in the evening. The showers are forecast to exit the region overnight as temperatures dip to a low near 14°C.

Long Range Outlook

Next week is starting to look like it will be quite an unsettled one. Forecasts show an increasingly hot and humid air mass pushing northwards into the region. A couple organized systems are forecast to bring showers and the risk of thunderstorms to the region during the first half of the week.

Winnipeg’s seasonal daytime high is currently 25°C while the seasonal overnight low is 13°C.

One thought to “Mostly Cloudy Skies and Seasonal Temperatures Ahead for Canada Day Weekend”

  1. Happy Canada Day, Winnipeg! It’s going to be a beautiful day with increasing cloud and a high near 26°C. Chance of showers/thunderstorms later today; best chance is between 4-8PM as a cold front swings through. Clears out for the fireworks, though!

    Still a risk for severe thunderstorms this afternoon with the passage of the cold front. Primary severe threat will be winds gusts exceeding 90 km/h, but some large hail is possible too. See more details in our bulletin viewer:
