Beautiful Summer Weather Ahead

Winnipeg will see beautiful summer conditions this weekend with mild temperatures and plenty of sun.

Today’s forecast will be short and sweet as there isn’t a whole lot to say! Over the next few days, the large-scale pattern will shift as a cold trough exits northern Manitoba. In its place will be a gradually amplifying upper ridge. The result will be lots of sunshine and slowly warming temperatures.

For today, Winnipeg will see a high near 25°C with northerly winds picking up into the 20 to 30 km/h range. A couple clouds may move through in the morning, but all in all it should be a mainly sunny day. The winds will taper off tonight as temperatures head to a low near 8°C.

The high pressure centre will move through southern Manitoba on Saturday, bringing sunny skies and a high near 26°C. Winds will be light and variable. Skies will stay clear on Saturday night as the temperature dips to a low near 12°C.

On Sunday, Winnipeg will again see mainly sunny skies, but a light southerly wind near 20 km/h will send temperatures to a high near 29°C. Some cloud cover will likely push in late Sunday night with temperatures dipping to a low near 17°C.

Long Range Outlook

Winnipeg will see increasingly humid and unsettled conditions to start next week as the southerly winds continue and push moisture northwards into the region. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday could all bring showers or thunderstorms to the region. Temperatures will remain warm throughout, though, and the latter half of the week looks to be sunny with highs in the upper 20s.

Today’s seasonal daytime high in Winnipeg is 26°C while the seasonal overnight low is 13°C.
