Sunny and Seasonably Cool Weather Ahead

Winnipeg will see plenty of sunshine over the next three days with daytime highs falling into the low 20s.

It will be a beautiful start to the week in Winnipeg as temperatures climb to a seasonal 25°C under plenty of sunshine. A weak ridge of high pressure over the region will keep winds light as well; the city will see generally westerly winds of 10 to 20 km/h.

An approaching low will trigger a few showers and/or thunderstorms this afternoon over western parts of the province. Heading into the evening, this area of instability will shift eastwards into the Red River Valley, bringing scattered showers with a risk of thunderstorms later in the evening. This activity should clear out overnight with temperatures dipping to a low near 13°C.

Any remaining cloud will clear out early Tuesday morning as a ridge of high pressure builds in from the northwest. This ridge will bring the city plenty of sunshine over the next couple days with highs in the low 20s. Winds will be breezy out of the northwest both days; Tuesday should see them strengthen to 30 gusting 50 km/h followed by lighter winds on Wednesday of 20 to 30 km/h. Both nights will bring lows in the high single-digits.

Long Range Outlook

Temperatures should rebound back to seasonal values for Thursday as the ridge moves off to the east. Heading into the weekend, it looks like a large upper trough will swing towards the region, bringing several chances for rain or thunderstorms through the weekend.

Today’s seasonal daytime high in Winnipeg is 24°C while the seasonal overnight low is 11°C.
