Friday Brings Wintery Mix, Comparatively Pleasant Weekend Ahead

Winnipeg will see another wet day today as a wintery mix of precipitation falls over the Red River Valley. By comparison, the cool but dry weekend will seem pleasant!

Winnipeg will see another cold, wet day of snow and rain today. A low pressure system moving through North Dakota will spread an area of snow across southern Manitoba early this morning. Temperatures will remain cool with a high near +2°C, but may warm just enough to mix the snow with rain this afternoon. The snow/rain will taper off this evening, leaving the city with mostly cloudy skies and just a slight chance of some flurries through the remainder of the evening. Temperatures will head to a low near -1 or -2°C.
From snow in the southwest to rain in the southeast and a wintery mix between the two, southern Manitoba will see another wet day today.

Fortunately the weekend will bring slightly improved conditions, but the region will still remain way below seasonal temperatures. Winnipeg should see a mix of sun and cloud on Saturday with temperatures reaching a high near 5°C. Skies will remain mixed on Saturday night as temperatures dip to a low near -4°C.

Sunday will bring cloudier conditions back to the region ahead of the next low pressure system on the way. Under mostly cloudy skies, Winnipeg should see temperatures reach a high near 7°C. It looks likely that some light rain will move into the Red River Valley on Sunday night as temperatures dip to a low near +1 or +2°C.

The winds will remain light through the weekend.

Long Range Outlook

More rain will move through the region on Monday, followed by a week of mixed to mostly cloudy skies and cool temperatures. Temperatures will remain well below normal with highs generally around 5°C and overnight lows near or just below 0°C.

Winnipeg’s seasonal daytime high is currently 14°C while the seasonal overnight low is +2°C.
