Winnipeg will see variable cloudiness and seasonal temperatures through the remainder of the work week.
Great early September weather is on tap for Winnipeg today as temperatures climb to a high near 23°C with plenty of sunshine. Winds will also be light out of the south at 15 to 20 km/h. The cloud cover will thicken up this evening ahead of a low pressure system arriving from Saskatchewan. Winnipeg shouldn’t see any rain tonight; the precipitation with this system is forecast to split and pass through the southern Interlake and into the United States. A few showers may be possible in the Red River Valley with increasing likeliness towards the U.S. border. Temperatures will dip to a low near 14°C with light winds.
Skies will gradually clear out on Thursday morning, leaving the city with partly cloudy to mixed skies in the afternoon. Winds will stay light out of east-northeast as temperatures climb to a high near 22°C. Winnipeg will see a few clouds through Thursday night as a cold front sweeps across the Red River Valley. This front will likely stay dry as it pushes southeast, but northwesterly winds near 20 km/h will develop. Temperatures will dip to a low near 14°C again.
Winnipeg will see partly cloudy skies again on Friday but those northwest winds will strengthen to around 30 km/h for the afternoon. Temperatures will continue the slight cooling trend with a high near 21°C. Firmly in the cooler air on Friday night, temperatures will be colder with lows dropping into the mid-single digits.

Today’s seasonal daytime high in Winnipeg is 21°C while the seasonal overnight low is 8°C.
