Unsettled Start To Weekend Brings Warmer Weather

After an unsettled start to the weekend, Winnipeg will finally see a return to seasonal temperatures.

After a sunny start to the day, the Red River Valley will see increasing cloud cover this afternoon as a low pressure system moves into the region from Saskatchewan. Before the cloud arrives, though, temperatures should climb to a high near 15°C with southerly winds near 30 gusting 50 km/h. The chance for showers will spread into western Manitoba this afternoon and then push eastwards along a warm front draped across the southern Interlake. There will be slight chance of isolated showers south of this line in the Red River Valley, but the odds are low. Winds will veer southeasterly tonight and persist through the night in the 20 to 30 km/h range.

Any possible showers on Friday night will likely pass north of Winnipeg.

Temperatures will reach a high near 16°C with northerly winds of 20 to 30 km/h. The city may see a few sunny breaks through the day, but skies will clear in earnest on Saturday evening. Saturday night will bring light northerly winds as temperatures head to a low near 5°C.

Sunshine and warmer weather return on Sunday! With just a few clouds, Winnipeg will see temperatures climb to a high near 18°C. Winds will stay light out of the north, finally giving Winnipeg a beautiful spring day. Temperatures on Sunday night will be mild with a low near 8°C as skies become mixed.
