Cloudy, Seasonably Mild Conditions Ahead

Winnipeg will see increasing cloud today as seasonably mild temperatures move into the region for the rest of the week.

Mild Pacific air has managed to wash over the Prairies over the past few days and will stay put for the next 5-10 days. Through the rest of this work week, Winnipeg will see highs near -7°C with overnight lows in the -10 to -15°C range.

An approaching upper trough will spread clouds into the region today and keep them around through the rest of the week. While a few flurries may be possible over the southwest corner of the province, it doesn’t look like any will make it into the Red River Valley.

Winds will also stay light over the next few days, out of the north today and tomorrow then shifting southerly on Friday.

Long Range Outlook

Another push of mild air will move across the Prairies this weekend, sending temperatures close to the freezing mark by Sunday. A few flurries may be possible with the warming temperatures. Breezy southerly winds are also likely on Saturday.

Today’s seasonal daytime high in Winnipeg is -13°C while the seasonal overnight low is -23°C.
