Humid Monday Gives Way to Cooler Conditions

Winnipeg will see one more warm and humid day before cooler, drier air sweeps into the region.

Winnipeg will see temperatures, and the humidity, climb to start the work week. Skies will mix out this morning as a warm front pushes northwards through the region. Behind the warm front, temperatures will climb to a high near 28°C; with the humidity that arrives today, that will end up feeling more like the mid-30s. A cold front will begin to push across the Red River Valley this afternoon and be the focus for another round of thunderstorms. While a majority of the activity will likely develop over southeastern Manitoba, there is still a slight chance for a few showers or thunderstorms Winnipeg and areas south. Any thunderstorms that develop today will have the potential of producing severe weather with primary threats of large hail and/or damaging wind gusts.

Drier air will push into the region tonight as winds pick up out of the northwest to around 30 km/h overnight and temperatures drop to a low near 12°C. Skies will see increasing cloud through the night.
